Campus Disconnect: Six Students Speak Out

Campus Disconnect: Six Students Speak Out

December 15, 2022
Unbeknownst to some, Alexandria City High School (ACHS) diverges into four separate campuses: King Street, Minnie Howard, Chance for Change (CFC), and Satellite. Though the King Street Campus is only one of four, many see it as the center point, with the other three campuses acting as subdivisions, rather than existing as four interconnected bodies. This heavy disconnect has separated each campus to the point of being identified as four different high schools, despite them all bearing the title “Alexandria City High School.” To address the unique experience that each campus offers, six students were interviewed on their perspectives as a student from each campus.

School Torn Between Lunch Arrangements

September 27, 2022
The first day of school usually consists of a lot of stressful and confusing situations, however, most were more alarmed by the end of Lunch and Learn. Lunch and Learn was a huge part of our school last year. Lunch and Learn was a 74-minute universal lunch block that gave students and staff freedom to choose their activities. Although a primary benefit was giving time for students and teachers to meet, Lunch and Learn benefited students in a variety of other ways. This school year, Lunch and Learn is gone, and students are divided between 3 different lunch blocks. In its absence, teachers and students have strong opinions.

Critically Thinking Through CRT

Critically Thinking Through CRT

Yahney-Marie Sangaré, Staff Writer March 23, 2022
Critical Race Theory, frequently shortened to CRT, has been recently transformed into a rallying cry and a political death sentence; in short, it has become scholarly gunfire. In the midst of loaded statements, tumultuous think-pieces, and competing propaganda, Virginian students, parents, and citizens are left dangling between spheres of competitive influence where policy has forbidden an elusive ‘something’ that previously was rarely given name outside of higher education. The slew of misinformation that haunts its rhetoric has not been aided by recent talking points. Demystifying the surreal imagination of CRT in Virginian schools, students and teachers of ACHS speak on its impact.

On Tuesday, October 26, Girl Up kicked off its first in-person meeting since 2019.
