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.
Review Albany High School
Albany has such potential to be a good school. It's a good size, but not too big and because it's such a small town, the school is so friendly and "home-y". However, it's like no one -- not the teachers or any administration -- care about their jobs or their students' futures. Every now and then, you may luck up with a great teacher, and you'll never forget them, but I just wish there was as much focus on education and college preparation as there was on sports.
It gives opportunities around this small town that other schools in bigger towns do not get. Opportunities such as: CNA, Patient Care Technician at Literacy Center in Walker, EMT, First Responder courses, etc. This school is very positive and supports students' influences. They have a strong disciplinary system as well. The teachers have strong, knowledgable abilities and really try to help us succeed.
