Albany High School Reviews
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!
Albany High School was pretty amazing. I was pretty nervous starting my first year here. As I continued to go to school I became vary aware of different intentions and selecting the right path that was best for me. Becoming to grow as a teenager was pretty hard, but with all the help with the staff as well as my guidance counselor it became very valuable to me. I loved my friends and got along with all of my associates. This is a diverse high school with many great people. It gives you an opportunity to socialize with a variety of cultures. As well as a chance to get into some extracurricular activities. The games are really fun to watch, everyone is supportive and have a positive vibe. I would very much consider this school for anyone looking for an incredible experience!
excellent staff and diversity, however administration is poor and uncooperative. There are a large number of academic programs that students can enroll in, such as plentiful AP courses, college courses sponsored by local colleges, and an IB program. There are also plenty of afterschool clubs and activities for students to join. The administration, however, has proven difficult to work with and refuses to take student-made complaints into consideration. They tend to make poor decisions that stem from nowhere, and do very little to inform the school about new rules and regulations, often meaning students would get in trouble for rules they didnt even know existed.
