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.

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.
Albany high school is mediocre at best. If you're not planning on going to college it would not be a bad choice, as they offer decent shop classes during the school year and refer you to some during the summer. However, if you're on a college track the only preparation you can get is to leave half a day to take courses at SELU.
