Alhambra Traditional School Reviews
Excellent school. I personally attended this school, graduated in 1999, and I know the school has played a signification role in my success. My younger brother also attended this school and graduated earlier this year. Are there limited extra-curricular actives? Yes. Is the school work demanding and difficult at times? Absolutely. However, if you have the mental drive to work hard with your child towards a great education and the capability to physically drive them to the campus for nine long years, it is 100% worth the effort since they will receive the groundwork for mathematics, English composition, research skills, reading comprehension, and time management skills (due to the homework). I am glad I attended the school and I am confident that my brother will breeze through high school due to the strong knowledge foundation. Overall, YES, the school is excellent; it is better than a charter school (established and excellent test scores) and cheaper (no cost) than a private one! :)
My daughters both attended ATS and went on to full scholarships in college--one as a National Merit Scholar. We attribute their academic success largely to the excellent education, challenge, and high expectations they experienced at ATS. The Spalding Method for teaching the English language arts at ATS produces excellent readers, spellers, and writers. In high school, other students would seek out my daughters to proofread their essays. I am semi-retired and occasionally help as a guest teacher ("Sub") at ATS. I have not observed or heard of bullying during my many times there. With the strong discipline and watchfulness of teachers and staff at ATS, it is highly unlikely that bullying would go unnoticed or, if observed, be unpunished.
Very good school academically but the administration allows severe bullying to take place and will not suspend or expel any student even if they threaten the life of another as a matter of fact there is a tendancy to support the violent bullies and there families. This is the truth about Alhambra Tradional School. This needs to change if they are to remain successful--eventually many good families will have no choice but to leave. This is not an isolated but fact.
Alhambra is a fantastic school. It really teaches you a lot.
It is a great school. It has taught me so much about good behavior and responsibility. I give my school five stars.
I highly recommend to parents and children to go to Alhambra Traditional School. I have learned manners, respect, and to do the best I can. This school's acadamic level is exellent. I get great grades and the teachers are magnificent. The parents are involved alot. ATS is strict, but lets us, students, have privliges. We also have awsome technology. This school is an industious school.
I love this school. It has taught me manners,respect,and to be the best I can be. I give it 5 stars.
