Albuquerque Academy Reviews
The academics are rigorous, but they have prepared me for college. Like many other schools, Albuquerque Academy also has many clubs, sports, and extra curricular activities that can balance the year.
However, Albuquerque Academy comes at a price. Although the school has been high-achieving, I strongly believe that amazing teachers, resources, and opportunities could be found for no cost with enough effort.
There are some things that could be improved. The high-stress, competitive, culture of the school is my main objection. Teachers and administrators should structure the curriculum and our classes in a way that better fosters our natural curiosity and incentive to learn rather than our currently more grades and rating-oriented system. More diversity in the student body would be a refreshing change, and... better food couldn't hurt. :)
Taking this into account as well as the good quality of education and college prep, I'd rate it around 4/5 stars.
