Albany High School Reviews
Albany High School is very diverse! Here you’ll find students of all different races, ethnic backgrounds, religions, beliefs, hobbies, personalities, and more! Also Albany High School provides many education opportunities including: summer internships, college visits, trade programs, etc. Another great thing about my school is how rigorous the workload can be. Albany High School offers the IB program, AP classes, and college prep classes. The teachers and counselors at my school are very passionate about their job and truly want to see us students succeed. My school has many different clubs that support the interests of all types of students! For example, anime club, multicultural club, student government, and much more!
Environment is very hectic and dirty. Facilities are always dirty. Many students are constantly roaming the halls. Not enough room for the amount of students in the building. Too overcrowded. Hallways are packed and crazy. Students are disrespectful. The advanced classes, for the most part are very good. Numerous clubs available to students. There is great diversity in this school. Many programs are available to help students. Food is terrible, but good for free to all students. Have to go through metal detectors and bag check to ensure safety. Only have two good sports teams. Many are not built up well and are constantly losing. Music is always good and concerts. Teachers are dedicated.
Albany high school was a good place to learn. Classes definitely prepare you for college applications/intro classes in college (comparative to many other schools), but the classes were very limited in choice. People are now trying to shut down advanced placement classes which would put everyone at a disadvantage as all non-honors/AP core classes taken were dry, slow and boring. The highlights of the school were definitely the classes that weren't forced upon you by requirements (such as ROP Photography). Teachers were mostly great thought!
