For those of us who have been around awhile, the change has beem heartbreaking. 5 years ago the school was full of dedicated, caring, experienced teachers. The massive exodus of these teachers since the arrival of the new administration has left the school with teachers who are there just for the paycheck, who have no classroom management skills, who are more concerned about being cool and popular with the kids than actually having the kids actually learn anything. There are notable exeptions of course, but they are few and far between.

I agree administration is terrible. They act like the just starting running this school yesterday. The peer pressure is extremely high for girls. You would expect this for 11-13 year old girls, but it's absoulutely awful They were trying to institute a no bully team and that was a JOKE. I hope that in 7 years, when my youngest gets to the Jr. School, they have a new Principal and new teachers.

The lack of real leadership at this school is the failing point of this school. The kids flaunt the rules, from dress code, bullying, profanity, and ludeness, to cell phones in class. The good teachers are outnumbered by unruly children, apathetic peers, and absentee administration. We are private schooling until High School.

Alamo Heights is a private school feel in a public school. The teachers and faculty are first rate. The children are quality kids with amazing potential. There are activities for all personalities to be involved in. Parents are welcome and encouraged to participate in all school activities.

Socially, this is a really hard school for any student. A lot of kids are picked on. Competition for social standing is especially strong among the girls. Very little individual attention or encouragement from teachers. Terrible school for kids with special needs. Find another school. That's what we did.

The campus is really going to look great after the recent bond improvements. We will have the best science labs in the state for our children. I've been very impressed with the new principal and the teacher quality. A great match!

Unfortunately the new principal has proven wrong for this formerly fine school. Hopefully the correction will take place before the school is ruined. Alamo Heights has been a special place of quality and tradition. 'Newness' is not a virtue in such an environment.

Alamo Heights is one of the safest neighborhoods in San Antonio. The quality of education reflects the aforementioned. Many of the teachers at Alamo Heights have written, or edited their own textbooks and many of them hold doctoral degrees. High school is the launchpad for college, and what better place to prepare your child for college than at one of the finest public schools in San Antonio.

I was able to participate in volleyball and basketball while participating in a Math Organization, the orchestra program, and all Honors classes. Due to the Robinhood system, the school has suffered many budget cuts that have affected its ability to update the building and go on field trips (my 8th grade field trip was canceled because of the lack of funding). I feel like the academic programs were excellent (especially in the Math, Science, and English departments). Because of the high quality of academics I learned these past years at AHJS, I was able to earn a scholarship to a private school and receive State recognition on the Duke Talent Search in seventh grade (along with 32, i believe, other students at AHJS). I don't know how well I can comment on parent involvement, but ,from what I saw, they helped out a lot. I can't comment on the new principal.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
