Great school for college prep and planning. Counselors are very helpful and coordinate with parents and students early.
This is an amazing school. The campus is huge. It has the option of studying abroad in highly prestigious high schools. Moreover, offers generous scholarships for u.s. citizens.
this place is the best school in the state of New Mexico. Much better than nearby La Cueva High School which is said to be the best public high school in New Mexico

I consider it a really worth it school. They also give generous scholarships to us. citizens. The education is high quality. Moreover, the reputation is highly valued by universities and colleges.
The community is incredible and I always feel safe on campus. The academics are very rigorous, but are balanced well with clubs and sports on campus.
Academy will prepare you for college. The teachers and administration truly care about you. The school is meant for students who want to excel and who want to continue their education after high school especially in a rigorous manner.
The teachers seem to enjoy teaching and listen to students. The administration is very competent and continues to advance the school. My child learned how to study and spend her time effectively and is doing well at college.
I liked the atmosphere quite a bit but it was very competitive. The teachers were all wonderful and enjoyed their jobs very much. I was extremely ready fro college academics-wise. Socially, I was not ready because Academy is very isolated.
Albuquerque Academy has prepared me for college better than any other high school in Albuquerque could.
Really great experience. Had an amazing high school career and so glad for the opportunity to graduate from Academy.
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.
Great school, gets better and better the higher the grade. Generally 8-9th grades are not very enjoyable, but they prepare you and make you appreciate 10-12th. Amazing community, generally very honest and welcoming.
Mock Trial, Musicals, Math Club, Entrepreneurship Club, a multiplicity of sports offered (most of which they really excel at). Basically there is anything there that your student could wish for. If they want something new the school helps them with setting it up.
Very knowledgable in their subject, enjoy teaching and do their best to help all students learn effectively.
Great academics, really knowledgable and helpful teachers, wide range of subjects available
I always feel safe at school. There seems to be a policy for every situation.
There are many options from which to choose.

I do not like the experiential education program. But the school does a nice job of creating well rounded students who develop a love of learning.
Although not all of the teachers are great, many of them are. The vast majority of teachers enjoy working with students and are able to adapt their teaching styles to help individual students.
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.
