Albuquerque Academy Reviews
Review Albuquerque Academy
The academics are top-notch here. Teachers ask a lot of their students but are also understanding and helpful. Mostly everyone here wants to excel, and each student finds a special area where they are talented. The curriculum is challenging, and there are a lot of requirements, but there is also enough flexibility so that everyone can take the classes they want. There are innovative classes here--take for example Godzilla (11th grade course), which combines English with American History. The academics here are usually regarded as the best in the state, and have been named fifth best in the country.
Our campus is very open, and people not associated with the school can be seen on the running paths. This being said, it seems that our campus is secure and we always have security personnel on guard. In recent years the school implemented a padlock system, and only teachers can open classrooms. The response to this has been very negative, and most teachers keep the doors ajar anyway. The environment here is very open-- students leave their backpacks lying around, and no one fears that anything will be stolen. Personally, I feel very comfortable here, but the openness may scare people who are not used to it. Our nurse is very helpful and the health program is great. We also have an entire counseling team that is on constant watch. Rarely do kids slip through the cracks here. For such a difficult school, the general happiness and mental health is good.
Academy is great for the same reason The Hofbrau was great in the late 80s/early 90s. You went there on Wednesday because everybody else would be there (and to hear Gene Hood). The school itself is good, with good teachers, good resources, reasonable class sizes, caring administration. But the school is great because many of the most talented kids are there.
