The Alamo Heights School System
Alamo Heights, Texas, is located in Bexar County and is surrounded by the city of San Antonio. While the community has a population slightly larger than 7,000, the greater San Antonio area is home to nearly 2.5 million residents – making it the 24th largest metropolitan area in the country. The majority of students living in Alamo Heights belong to the Alamo Heights Independent School District. With slightly less than 5,000 students enrolled, it’s one of the smaller school districts in the area and ranks among the top 20 districts in the state.
If you're looking to give your child an education that’s second to none, Varsity Tutors can help. Whether your student is enrolled in Kindergarten or has just begun a college degree program, there’s a private tutor who can give them the assistance they need throughout their entire educational career.

In addition to End of Course exams, students living in Texas are required to pass the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STARR) throughout their primary and secondary education. These exams assess students’ knowledge of the state’s “Essential Knowledge and Skills,” and cover math, sciences, English, and social studies. For high school students, this exam aims to measure the pupil’s proficiency level in algebra, biology, chemistry, geometry, English, and history.
Succeeding at standardized tests is a skill in itself. Not only do students need to memorize the material covered in their assessments, but they also need to improve their test-taking strategies, study habits, and time management skills. Unfortunately, some top-performing students struggle to excel in exams for this reason. Working with a private Alamo Heights tutor is a great way to help your child prepare for standardized tests like the STARR as well as college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT. A personal tutor will be able to review relevant material with the student while instructing them on how to use their critical thinking skills to apply their textbook knowledge effectively.
