Albany City Unified School District Reviews

I had an excellent educational experience in the Albany Unified School District. From pre school to graduating senior, it has long been my home. I truly valued my time in such an intensely cultural and thoughtfully diverse student body, something I now seek out in my continued education and professional career. The work ethics and personal responsibility taught in Albany has prepared me well for the trials of adulthood, although I feel they could have been more helpful on the actual college and scholarship application process. Overall Albany is a wonderful school district, one I found to be highly inclusive, fun and academically oriented. I would recommend highly to my friends and family.

I've been in the Albany school district since kindergarden. I have really enjoyed my time as a student, however, there are a lot of issues in the distric as well. Teachers are usually motivated but it is common to have a totally incompitant teacher teaching a class. Students are highly motivated and get into amazing colleges. Classes are fun and the students are too.
Albany is a very accepting district, and does it's best, given the scarce resources to improve our schools and facilities and school funded activities. I believe we are of the better districts in the area, and I am proud to have been part of it. However, nothing too much happens in albany, so if something major comes up, albany does not necessarily know how to handle the issues, which is unfortunate at times.
