Welcome to Alexander High School!

We are a Liberal Arts College Preparatory and AP Capstone Magnet High School. Liberal arts education provides a strong background in all academic areas. The curriculum includes in-depth studies in mathematics, sciences, languages, literature, social studies, and fine arts, as well as opportunities to explore technology, and career concentrations. Students grow in their abilities to read, write and speak effectively, and to examine ideas critically. The rigorous curriculum of the liberal arts program requires the student to stretch academically, complete homework in all classes, and meet high expectations in behavior. Please visit the Liberal Arts College Preparatory and AP Capstone Magnet page for more information on the program, meetings, and the application process.
