After attending Albemarle High School for Four years I can honestly say it has its ups and its downs. One of the things I liked about it was how small the student population was. It made it easy to really get to know everyone. One of the things I disliked most however was the fact that it doesn't have a lot of extracurricular class offerings. They do provide transportation to other schools for half the day if you needed to take certain classes the school doesn't offer but this can cause your schedule to become restricted. If you were involved in a club that had a meetings in the mornings you wouldn't be able to go because of the transportation schedule. The teachers are good and there's always someone willing to help with any questions you may have.

There are higher education courses that need to be taught. For instance, AP Chemistry was not taught and neither was

AP Statistics. Supposedly, there was not a qualified teacher. Although one teacher is qualified to teach statistics and may next year. Also, Physics has not been taught for at least two years--even though a certified teacher in that area was fully qualified to teach and 10 students were signed to take it. The principal did not care for the teacher and so unfortunately the teacher left for another school system. Very unfortunate--no physics this year or last. Students do not come first here.
It is not the teachers, but rather teachers only have the 30 minute "pride time" available for teachers to give

help to students. They cannot come before class, they cannot come after. Also, there is no other allotted time for students

to use the media center. I think that at least for a half hour to one hour after school ends or one half hour before school starts extra help should be given. It is not the school's policy unfortunately.
