I have really enjoyed my time at AEHS. The teachers are very good and there are challenging classes while maintaining a calm and inclusive vibe. The sports are not insane but constantly improving and the games get a lot of fans. The most important thing is that you are self-motivated. If you care, it is indeed the place to be. Go Titans! Roll 'Stein!

I loved it at AEHS! What was so great about it was that we were such a tight community. Everyone knew everyone and we were all friends. Although we each had our own friend groups we all got along with each other. I also loved the diversity. We had so many minorities in our school (myself included) and it was incredible getting to meet people from different cultures. I also loved the school spirit. Our football games, especially our homecoming games, were so fun and exciting! We genuinely had a family atmosphere at AEHS. It was also a great learning experience. While we definitely had some teachers that weren't the greatest, we had many who were incredible. Also, for my specifically, I enjoyed the fact that Einstein has an Academy of Finance. I'm a business major, specifically marketing, and I think that this academy definitely prepared me well for college.
In order to put into context my review of Einstein High School, you must understand, I am a senior in the IB Diploma programme at Albert Einstein High School and a president of a club. Albert Einstein High School is a wonderful school. The teachers, for the most part, are committed and ready to help students. One of the largest problems is a large number of students in comparison with the resources given. Another problem that has been commented to me is the large allocation of resources to the higher level IB students, rather than the honors and on level students. In spite of all of this, the student life is welcoming and fun, with many activities for the students to enjoy and including a wonderful amount of traditions that really allow for our students to feel part of the school. The ability to pursue leadership positions is really endless from club positions to SGA positions, allowing anyone with a willingness and commitment to make the most of their high school experience.
