I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Efren Moreno, Former Alhambra Mayor

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

Jeff Maloney, Alhambra City Council Member

The Source has become an important source for news, public interest, and serious journalism in our community. Keep it up!

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Adele Andrade Stadler, Alhambra Mayor

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

Cliff Bender, Vice President, Alhambra Education Foundation

Alhambra Source is the ONLY independent news source covering the events, culture and government of our city. We need it to stay informed and aware!

Three AUSD schools in top 200 of Newsweek's high school rankings; San Gabriel High places 9th

San Gabriel High School is ranked ninth among 500 US schools that serve low-income families, according to Newsweek. SGHS was the top ranked school from California. Mark Keppel came in at 107, while Alhambra High was placed at 165. 
 
The ranking is part of Newsweek's "Beating the Odds" feature, which "seeks to identify schools that do an excellent job of preparing their students for college while also overcoming the obstacles posed by students at an economic disadvantage." The ranking takes into account the school's graduation rate, and the percentage of student who are college bound. 
 
All of the Alhambra Unified School District high schools have poverty levels above 65%, according to Newsweek. 

Independent journalism is a bedrock of democracy--and it's in crisis. Here at the Alhambra Source, we're committed to covering the local stories that matter most to you. We don’t have advertisers and we don’t have pay walls, but we do have bills. You read to the end of this story. That's great. But this kind of journalism will end without public support. Join us! Support the work and the democratic values it serves. Donate now!

  1. Congratulations to our students and teachers.  It's the people who make our city.  Despite a relatively high poverty rate among our childrens' families, they and their teachers have done more for the city through such accomplishments than all the trickle-down policies that consume our precious resources (e.g., grant funding).  For those who are only about their property values, thank our kids and teachers because to a large degree you are riding on their backs.  Think what can happen if we were to put more of a focus on the people!
