Albany City Unified School District Reviews

I have been going to Albany schools my whole life and I am a current senior graduating in 2019. It is a very small campus and this may not appeal to all but I enjoyed the community feel. My counselor Ms.Burns was excellent and extremely helpful. The principle Ms. Ritchie is attentive responsive even if she can't help in the way that you would want. They offer difficult courses and I think that the classes are the best thing going for the school. I was happy that my teachers pushed me regarding my school work. There are a lot of teachers who have been teacher there for a long time, the new teachers aren't as good. There are loads of clubs for such a small school and I recommend getting involved in any ways that you can. I was president of two clubs and it provided me with great leadership experience.

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.
