Alhambra High School Reviews
Alhambra High School offered excellent Honors and AP courses for students taught by dedicated teachers. I enjoyed my time here, and there are many clubs to join and make friends. However, I have heard it has since gone downhill with the recent massive change in staff.
Alhambra High School is a wonderful school. i attended my freshman year and i was amazed by the faculty and the attention they give the students. It has safety and all the food is nutritious. So its a very healthy school. there is a lot of extra curricular activity's available for the students and they are always on top of the students to make sure they get their credits. I enjoyed Alhambra High School while i was there, and if i could go back to that school i would. the environment is wonderful leaving everyone with a smile on there face.
