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!
Review Albuquerque High School
I attended this school all four years and I enjoyed it!! It is a diverse school that celebrates multiple cultures with open arms. There are a good amount of teachers who genuinely care about the education and well being of their students. There were so many ways to get involved, tons of clubs sports and academic organizations that were available to students. Overall not a bad school to attend I could not imagine attending high school anywhere else.
My overall experience at this school has been great. I had some great memories and some wonderful experiences through out the years. Although, this being my last year in high school the school is in construction which has definitely had a negative impact on my school experience this year. The school spirit for assembly's is what makes my school so unique, and the construction the building is having is taking away from this tradition. I guess this would be a reason as to why I could have liked to go to another high school for my senior year. School spirit is something very important being a senior, and the experience is not going to be even close as to how it could be if the school was not in construction all year. Setting aside school spirit, my educational experience at this school was surely one of the best in the district, knowing my school was one of the top schools to have in test scores for Albuquerque Public Schools.
