Albany Leadership Charter High School for Girls Reviews
My experience with ALH is wonderful! To being a freshman not knowing a lot till now me being a senior that I am and knowing, educated.
Ive Albany Leadership when I first started as a freshman. We would have culture meetings, culture clubs, ativities that everyone would enjoy. The school was and still is a majority of African American/Black students, and we had teachers that could relate to us. We would have typical field trips that mostly everyone had the privillege to. I am now a senior here, and alot has changed. We’ve lost teachers and administration that we connected so well to. My senior year is not how I expected it to be. We have new staff, new administration, new teachers, and ofcourse a new principle.
I’m currently a junior attending Albany Leadership Charter Highschool for Girls. My time at this school will always be remembered. I made some really great friends and really appreciate how much the teachers and staff took their time out for the students, they were always there when I needed help. Besides that, there were always community dinners held, fundraisers, after school activities which enriched the school culture. Also since it is relatively a small school mostly everyone knows eachother which is great because over the course of time you start to develop a bond, a connection with your teachers. Overall I had a great experience at Albany Leadership.
Great school honestly. They are very focused on academics, however, there aren't many after school activities, but the ones they do have are very fun. Sometimes it's a bit disorganized, but nevertheless a great school.
Albany Leadership is a place where girls can be themselves. I like how in this school everyone is not afraid to be who they are and here it is like safe space. Everyone has mostly their own group of friends they hangout with but in away we are united. As a senior I enjoy that the senior class gets along well with each other and that we can laugh and have fun. At this school everyone build each other up and are their sister's keeper.
Albany leadership's teachers are very kind and friendly, I a different backgrounds of people meet in school and respect each other most of the time, the classes are very serious about studying and learning, the mock regent exams give us the opportunity to see how the real regent looks like.
Major discrepancy between what this school advertises and what it acutally is. My daughter attended and the experience was traumatizing. Doors were taken off the bathroom, there were non-stop fights, and administration did nothing to create order/safe space. Please don't let your child go through that...
From middle school I had really low self esteem I never believed in myself and I never thought I was capable of having really good grades. Upon entering Albany leadership they have made me realize my potential and helped me build my skills in all the areas I needed. The teachers were very flexible and were willing to help anytime I needed. Now I'm a junior still attend this school I'm rank 1 in my class and have a 4.1 gpa none of this would've been possible without the help of the amazing teachers that worked diligently with me to better my self confidence and academic success.
Not enough sports to choose from.
They also have hall monitors
Parents barley seems to care about students work
The lessons are good but they cant control students
If I could do it all over again I would choose ALH again because they help me accomplish many of my goal during the school years. this school help a lot with my English do to the fact that is not my first language. the teachers in the school helped me with anything that I needed. I would also choose that school again because I met a lot of good friends and teacher during my school years.
This school is unique because of the fact that it is an all-girls and charter institution. It provides an environment where girls can feel comfortable, appreciated and supported by their peers and teachers. This school is small and so promotes individual attention and close relationships. My decision to re-enter this school would be torn between the fact that although I enjoy the small and comfortable atmosphere, I may prefer to attend a larger school that has more opportunities.
The teachers are all knowledgeable in their teaching areas. They are available for out-of-class-assistance and help students to the best of their abilities. Most teachers go above and beyond to ensure student success. Teachers make classes as engaging as possible to ensure that students understand and participate in the lesson. The staff generally care about students and are devoted to ensuring that they not only graduate but are ready for the next step of their lives.
My experience at this school has been great. i have met many new people that supported me over the years and pushed me to do better. The best memory i have are the spirit weeks we have each year, its a high school tradition that will always remain with me.
I mean I love the school I'm at . It's less Distractions but you have to be able to make that happen. They open doors for you but you must be willing to walk through them . We are a family!
