Alvin High School is a public high school located in the city of Alvin, Texas, USA and classified as a 6A school by the UIL. It is a part of the Alvin Independent School District located in central Brazoria County. In 2015, the school was rated "Met Standard" by the Texas Education Agency.
Alvin High School opened in 1894, with its first graduating class graduating in 1897. Alvin High School gained more residents as many school districts consolidated into Alvin ISD. and remained Alvin ISD's only high school until Manvel High School opened in fall 2006 with 9th and 10th grades, phasing in 11th and 12th grades in the following two years.
After the annexation of several school districts, ending with the Manvel Independent School District in 1973, Alvin High School served the city of Manvel, the town of Iowa Colony, portions of the city of Pearland (including the Brazoria County portion of Shadow Creek Ranch), and additional portions of unincorporated Brazoria County (including Rosharon) until the opening of Manvel High School.
Alvin ISD, since 2000, has required its students to adhere to a strict dress code. On January 28, 1999 300 students walked out of class to protest the dress code; 120 of them faced arrest and were charged with disrupting classes. One student requested a jury trial and had his charges dropped. Other students received probation and community service.
