It's a great school, some comments listed below are a bit negative (with some truth but more exaggerated.) There will always be a negative influence in every location in the United States and it's the students that choose to follow through with the choices their face with, not the school. Classes were cut due to budget cuts, not because the administration (which is great) not due to ignorance. All teachers wish the best for every student which is why others may assume they're "the best" but truly because they care about the students. Students learn growing up how to treat one another and I could definitely tell that through my high school career (especially following my transferring from another state.) Overall, the staff is great, the system is great, a powerful influence on us students and I'm proud to be an Alliance High School Bulldog.

I go to school here and I hate it. I feel the teachers are great but can not adjust to individual students, but talk to any teacher on the faculty and they believe they are the best teacher who ever lived! Newsflash! Administration is not teaching these kids. Teach, Motivate and adapt you need all of this to be a good teacher and if you can not say you have all these qualities you're not very good and if you can't motivate you SHOULD NOT BE TEACHING along with that fact the school is FULL of stoners who often come to school stoned who also have NO intention to learn ANYTHING AT ALL. but above all, why we can not get a decent score on a state regulated test is that the students who do not care (the vast majority of them) go through and click random answers rather than put in any thought AT ALL. But there are students who go above and beyond. I actually stunned administration by asking to do extra work..... voluntarily. They treated it almost like they had misheard me and don't even get me started on explaining such a thing to faculty!!!! and to top it all off they got rid of the following classes: French, almost all of the Computer classes, Honors English 2

Last year the school district was put on probation for low test scores and the district acted like it was a joke.

this school is more concerned about "keeping up with the jones'" and in constructing items that are not needed (ie: preforming arts center), than they are in maintenance of the existing builds, and most importantly in teaching and communication with students and parents. Vast majority of their teachers seem unable to teach. They certainly cannot control their teaching environment for those who actually want to learn, and safety of our students/children is not a priority either. If an option for on line classes existed as it does in Colorado, there would be no Alliance High School for any other reason than band. There is an administration and a School board who are currently more concerned about appearances than anything else. This administration cannot even stand up to a parent as to who REALLY is valadictorian, and have to instead pacifiy those parents by "awarding" their child (actually 2 children in this case) with an honor they had not truely worked for and earned. If I had it to do all over, I would home school.

This school is full of bad teachers who don't know how to teach, rude students who can't get along with each other, and an administration who can't control any situation. I seriously discourage any parent from sending there child to this dreadful place.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Nebraska used the Nebraska State Accountability (NeSA) assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grades 4, 8 and 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The NeSA assessments are standards-based tests, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nebraska. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
