Staff is useless and doesnt help solve ANY problems. I would never send ny child here ever again.
I went to this school for 4 years and it wasn't a great experience. It's true, only a select few of teachers actually want to engage the students to have the best time possible growing academically. Very few take the time to really bond with the students and not treat them as a means to earn their paychecks. Also, finding decent kids to bond with is hard. The kids at this school are either way too shy/antisocial or way to in your face trying to make you uncomfortable. There's too few in between. If you try your best to be a good student then you'll do well academically. There's plenty of sports and clubs to join beyond your time in the classroom. I did well with my grades and extracurricular activities, but I along with other students wouldn't rave about our school as a whole, especially the faculty. And if you do end up going to this school, really get involved with your counselors, they'll help you start a good roadmap to college. Even if you might dread having to talk to them, ask away your concerns. It'll benefit you and it's what they're there for.
This school would be better recommended as a prison with terrible staff and food that's is actually worse than prison cuisine. In my first year in Alhambra, I was sick some time in the beginning of the year. I often got up to get some tissues to blow my nose. However blowing my nose was enough to claim it was probable cause for 'disturbing the class from learning'. My teacher called my home for such crimes, and my parents were livid. When I calmed them and explained the situation, my parents went to talk to the principal; however it was afterschool and the principal was not there. As a result, my dad filed a complaint to the office. They never did anything to solve the problem. No action was taken. Afterwords there were other instances such as in my junior year where the attendance staff for my school forgot to get me out of class for a dmv appointment, so I was incredibly late. They also didn't excuse it which caused my grade to drop by 2 letters because I wasn't in the class. All in all, most of the teachers and staff members I've been squinted with were horrible but there were some that were actually there to assist me with my education.
All this years at Alhambra School Distric, the only thing that I dont really understand , is.. that many other good school districs their priority is their student's well being ; here at alhambra distric is just how much money they get for each student everyday. While the other schools are in vacations for the holidays,,here they wait until the last day to let them go. I understand about the (deficit) but is like putting minors to work in order to cover all the expenses of the distric..... Makes me sad; and the math teachers...well is better to leave it for later.
