Albany City School District Reviews

I like the diversity at Albany high school and how much the staff and teachers care about trying to help the students. All of my teachers have given my fellow classmates and I lots of opportunities to succeed and extra help when needed in the classroom. If I could change anything about Albany high, I would probably want to increase the amount of resources the school has. Teachers share classrooms and have to share computers between classes. I believe that if all teachers had their own classroom we would be able to be in a better learning enviornment suited for the specific class. I also think that there should be more computers available to students to help complete assignments and to do more innovate lessonsthat our educators plan for us.

Being apart of Albany City School District since I was in kindergarten and living in Albany my whole entire life, I’ve gained tremendous experience with this school district. Starting young you get more than enough support for your academics and extracurricular activities. Coming into middle school the teachers really try their best to prepare you for high school but still try to keep in mind you are only in middle school. They don’t enforce too much pressure on you but just enough to get your mind prepared for the next chapter in your life. Coming into Albany High School was a hard transition for me personally because I came from a really small middle school with the people that I knew for years to a school with more than 2,600 students. Big classes are just a norm in ACSD, especially in high school since Albany High is the only public school in Albany. One thing I love about ACSD is the diversity. It’s a no place for hate environment. One thing I would change is the food.
ACSD is wonderful at providing resources and opportunities for community growth. However, there are several elementary schools that feed into several different middle schools, which then feed into one high school. There are far too many students at Albany High School for the majority to receive the attention needed for excellence.
