My experience with Albert Lea Senior High School has been incredible. The school made me challenge myself and push myself to my limits by offering college classes. I've taken advantage of the college classes they offer and I'm so glad I did. The school isn't perfect, but what school is? Being a underclassmen for so long has made me look forward to being a senior, but being a senior is stressful and disappointing. Our principal has taken away privileges that seniors get to have; for example, togas. Besides from getting some privileges taken away from us, I'm glad I went to school here. I got to grow up with all of the peers and I know almost everybody in my class by name, which is amazing that we can all be close and connected.

I really enjoyed my time at ALHS! There are wonderful teachers that you can go to for more help than just class issues and an amazing staff that works hard every day to keep the school clean. One thing that was sort of bothersome was how things were constantly changing. Whether it was how we ran lunch or what the schedule was for the day it was changing every school year or multiple times a year. Overall, wonderful school.
Albert Lea High School is a very welcoming environment. There are many art and athletic programs to get involved in and meet new people. The classroom experience is good, teachers are there to help you and make sure you understand the material they are presenting. Most classes are challenging but there is always a way to get help as needed to meet your full potential and be successful. I'd like to see administration more involved and active with the students learning goals. The facility is beautiful and the classrooms, lunchroom, gym, etc. are clean and ready for learning and growth. Great place to attend high school.
