Open Quote My son only went to Alhambra High School for half a year, we had so many complications just from the first day. These people could not give straight answers when asked questions about the school. Also, they kept putting him as Hispanic when I kept telling the he is White. They made no atempts to resolve the issue. We would always get a go around when we asked about anything. The teachers are not really that smart, you do not want them teaching your child. The teachers are very rude and hard to talk to. The principle could not even give us straight answers on anything. I even had problem when I withdrew him. I am glad we have moved to a new district.

Open Quote Alhambra High School is one of the worst schools ever. I would not recommend anyone to go there. To many complications. The office workers are rude to the students and parents, they just wanted you out of their face and just wanted to go back and relax at their desk. Even the principle didn't care about the students and was very rude, if you got in his way, he would walk right into you and not even care. The teachers did not have a lot of knowledge on what they were teaching, they did not speak properly and would speak in slang. Every week there were at least 2 fights, in school or the quick mart across the street from the school. Where they would have cops every day. Close Quote

Open Quote I don't recommend this High school for any incoming students, I attended Alhambra high school for my whole four years, With many complications along the way. Many of their school counselor's quit, Many of the students violent and rude, And the staff is so illegitimate that the head counselor doesn't know anything about schedule errors and sends you to registration, where someone who has a lower education fixes the whole problem with a calm, cool, and collective attitude unlike the moron that calls herself a head counselor. Many of the teachers use foul language towards students, and often belittle trouble makers by asking crude questions about their intelligence. If your student is a slow learner, like myself, this hurts the self esteem because you do not grasp concepts as quick as excelling students. There are constant squabbles between students, and I believe my sophomore year, There was a violent confrontation between a security guard and several freshman students. There have been a few accounts of student teacher confrontations too. When I was on school grounds, I did not feel like I am in a safe environment. There is many students who carry weapons on to campus. Not to mention that the drug use is extremely high. There are rumors floating around that some of the security guards sell marijuana to the students. Not only that, But the school has poor sanitation, and nearly all bathrooms are locked up, for no one to use. I had caught myself on my period several times with no bathroom to take care of it. There is an array of clubs and activities that keep students out of trouble, but no mater how many their are, there isn't enough to counter the distasteful actions of everything else that goes on in the school.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
