About Our School
Alhambra High School, the home of the Moors since 1898, provides every student with a structured learning environment with the following student goals: motivated and self-directed learners; organized and effective communicators; original and critical thinkers; responsible and respectful citizens; self-disciplined participants.
Our faculty and staff are committed to providing the best educational opportunities available and to delivering quality standards-based instruction, emphasizing critical thinking, decision-making, and problem solving.
Alhambra High School has many things to be proud of, beginning with our exceptional faculty and staff members. Our outstanding student body reminds us daily why we went into the field of education. Through the many quality programs
we offer at Alhambra High School including Academic Decathlon; Honors and Advanced Placement courses; Visual and Performing Art opportunities such as our award winning Mighty Moors Marching Band; ceramics, drawing and painting,
dance teams and many quality athletic programs and clubs, our students are encouraged to achieve their goals. Our nationally ranked Speech and Debate team consistently performs at high levels as they compete against other schools. For
students acquiring English, we have a fine English Language Development department that works tirelessly to ensure that these students receive a strong foundation. In addition, our Career and Technical Education program has many fine
opportunities such as the Green Construction Academy, Business Education, Consumer Family Living and Industrial Technology classes in addition to Regional Occupational Program classes that help students reinforce academics as well as
gain valuable job skills.
Over the last few years Alhambra High School has undergone major renovations and construction projects. We have a new state of the art Science building. Our auditorium is beautiful with new seats and paint along with a new sound booth. For physical education and athletics purposes, the large gym has a new floor, scoreboard, paint and sounddeadening wall panels; both gyms have had new bleachers installed. We have new outdoor basketball and volleyball courts. The C and D buildings have a new heating and air-conditioning system as well as new outdoor pedestrian traffic coating. The list goes on, but all improvements have been made to ensure students learn in a suitable environment where they can challenge themselves to reach their dreams.
At Alhambra High School, failure is not an option. With our dedicated and experienced staff, Alhambra High School offers diverse and comprehensive learning opportunities for all students. A consistently high four-year graduation rate is proof that we work as a community to promote success for all our students. We believe that all students can and will learn because of what we do at Alhambra High School.
