School Colors: Orange and white
AHS school colors are based on the Satsuma orange and the White Cape Jasmine Gardenia which were grown in the Alvin Area. Alvin was known as the "Cape Jasmine Capital" of the world.
Around 1925-1927 the high school selected a mascot emblem. Clarence Coffey, suggested the Yellowjacket, as it is small but carries a potent weapon and has an aggressive spirit. The student body in an assembly adopted the emblem.
