My experience at Albuquerque High School was an incredible experience for me! I had met so many life long friends at this school. I got involved with so many sports and clubs that opened me up to a variety of fun opportunities and people. As far as college readiness goes, the school had a vast amount of resources that will prepare you for college such as ACT and SAT prep courses and AVID courses. It's up to you to put in the work to use these resources in order to prepare yourself for the next level of learning. The school's staff will lead you in the right direction and make your success a priority.

I admire the diversity that Albuquerque High offers. There are students from all over the city that not only have different backgrounds, but have something different to offer. Whether it be their culture, their language, their athletic ability, their intelligence, etc., every student contributes to the culture that is Albuquerque High. Yet, being that the school is dominated by the Hispanic/ Latino ethnicity, I would like to see more efforts to help these students achieve their greatest potential. Statistically, New Mexico ranks among the lowest in education with many dropouts being of Hispanic/Latino ethnicity. If more resources were readily available, and if more emphasis was put on these students, making them aware of not only their potential in the future, but that people care, change would undeniably occur for the better.
Albuquerque High School was definitely the right fit for a student like myself. This school has been rooted with rich and vast tradition, dating back to the founding year of 1879. The teachers at this school truly do care for their students and their needs. Every year, the school hosts Adopt-A-Child. We bring in elementary students from low income families at the start of December and throw a celebration in their honor. The school has tremendous sports teams that have won them multiple state championships from soccer to tennis to track. The student body is extremely diverse, with students from every background you can imagine in classes. It is the most diverse school in the city and everyone is treated equally.
