I love the bilingual program and the great opportunities it offers for the future! The teachers offer great advice and most of them have very good teaching experience. The best part about the education is being able to take as many classes as you want, especially the open enrollment to the AP classes offered at the school. The people and the culture is always easy to be a part of, since they are mostly from the same backgrounds as yourself. Very good school!

I really enjoyed attending Albuquerque High School because of the diversity. The student body and activities ranged all over the board, consisting of unique clubs and all different types of people. My teachers always seemed to be passionate about their jobs and reaching out to students. I rated AHS four stars instead of five because of the lack of college prep the school provided. I am now in my third year at the local university and I do not believe Albuquerque High prepared me or even encouraged their students to attend college.
What I liked about AHS is the community and unity. I was welcomed very well when I was knew, and we have all passed this tradition to to others. I would like to see an improvement in the bathrooms, this seems silly, but other than that its great!
