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.

Albert Einstein high school is a VERY diverse high school! You will not feel left out here. When I attended, there were unlimited resources to scholarships, jobs, college information and so much more! I even received a scholarship to go to college. At this school, counselors and teachers really encourage you to do your best and to strive for more. It is very hard to fail at this school
Einstein is one of the stereotypically poorer schools in our area, often nicknamed "Crimestein" I have never been in a situation where there was a likely threat to my life, but there have been a few near misses, including when a student brought an assault rifle into the parking lot and when a bomb threat kept us locked down for two hours. The IB and AP program is robust, but according to a teacher that has taught in other schools in our area, Einstein's "learning culture" is lacking. Students do not have as high of expectations placed on them.
