I like the at home small atmosphere but that also gives us less opportunities for exploring our future, top colleges, good financial aid, etc. We also have a staff shortage at times and some teachers don’t have the motivation to teach.

The school has improved over the years some while I've attended, however there are some teachers that simply either don't teach the material appropriately or don't teach at all. Sometimes I go to school and wonder why I'm not home because I would learn more at home then at school.
My personal experience with Albany High School was a great environment and community minded. Albany High School's staff was unprofessional and did not treat students that were not in advance placement classes the same as the higher level kids. I was in all advanced placement classes, and personally I felt that I and my class mates were treated better than those who chose not to participate in the more challenging classes.
