I think Alvarado is the best School a Child can attend!!
I graduated from Alvarado in 1996 and well let me tell you.... This was a place filled with happiness and a place to  be a kid!!! Lots of teachers with great knowledge who shared time with us before and after school,  in our second home Alvarado!!! I am also very sure that they are still qualifying people who have the experience to teach our new generations in which our nations depends!!

My two fifth graders are finishing at Alvarado this year. Our experience has been so positive that it will be hard to leave the school. Robert Broecker is an excellent administrator and also knows all of the children. The teachers are very professional and top-notch. Parental involvement in the school and school community is encouraged and makes a huge difference.

Couldn't be happier with our experience with Alvarado.   Particularly with the new principal, Robert Broecker, on board this year.

Caring, quality teachers.  Great administrative leadership.  Parental involvement is top notch.
