Incorporated into the city of San Antonio in 1922 this suburb holds a lot of charm as it's growth preceded the "cookie cutter" approach most developers took in nearby suburbs. Alamo Heights has the largest population of these suburbs by more than 2,000 with a total of 7,319. In the 2000 census the demographics reported that: of the 7,319 citizens 6,146 were caucasian, 992 hispanic, 181 other and the median income for families was $86,897.00. The reported median income makes this not the wealthiest suburb of San Antonio,believed by most, but rather the third wealthiest. It follows: Shavano Park with a median of $120,172.00, Olmos Park with a median of $103,571.00. Another important note is that Alamo Heights is a city of new money rather than old money such as the latter; which will continue as residents with education surpassing high school lags around 21.6%. Still with the median income as high as it is, there is a $45,205.00 difference between Alamo Heights and the city of San Antonio. Where the sensation over "09ers" begins is Alamo Heights High School where the students consistently perform lower than Reagan high school and Churchill High school but are proud of their performance in sports and the ignorant title of "rich" they have provided for themselves. I can't say it is all in their own hands however, complacency to their ignorance is provided by the public in the city of San Antonio.
In an ideal world:
person 1: "where do you go to school? "
Person 2: "Alamo heights. I know I know!*giggle*"
Person 1: "you know what? OHhhhh, that you're ignorant to reality?"

Alamo. Heights is a small town in the heart of San Antonio. Alamo Heights is renowned for it's academic excellence and is also well known for their state champion sports teams. Many stereotypes are made about Alamo Heights.
