Albemarle High School Reviews

Overall I think that Albemarle High School is a good school I just think that the only main problem is that some students don't care about their school work, grades and they kind of ruin it for everyone else. But for the most part there is a bigger percent of the students that do care and that do try. Another problem that we have is that we don't have enough resources or enough administration meaning we don't have many academic/elective classes to choose from.

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.
