Albemarle County Public Schools Reviews

25 reviews
All Categories
As a high school student attending Albemarle High School in Albemarle County, I would say my overall experience has been phenomenal. The public schools around the county are well-known for all their hard work and achievements throughout the years. The schools in Albemarle County work hard to make sure every student is given the chance to succeed and pursue a level of education that they may not get the chance to pursue in another county around the country. Some students are eligible for scholarships and about a fourth of the students in Albemarle County receive reduced price lunches. As any student and their family would hope, Albemarle County analyzes data from previous years to improve their systems and help students prepare for life after school.

My name is Neah Nelson, I've been attending Albemarle County Public Schools since I was four years old. I had the opportunity to be in the Bright Stars program at Greer Elementary. The program allows children to start school at the age of four instead of five or six. Albemarle County Schools are great overall. The Schools are very diverse and the teachers push you to succeed inside of their classroom. I attended five Albemarle County Public Schools: Greer Elementary, Cale Elementry, Burley Middle School, Monticello High School, and Albemarle High School. Each of those school were great, all of my teacher pushed me to do my best, but there were some teacher that didn't really care about he students. One thing I would change about the schools is having more career driven class. I've noticed that more and more students are not going to college because of the cost and or the just dislike school in general.
I attend Albemarle High School, a school that regulary scores in the top five percent of schools in the country. My school values an intellectually based diversity which is prevalent at other county schools. I applaud the schools for their welcomeness to those who are impoverished, underprivileged and fleeing as refugees from Syria (my town is a sanctuary city). The most important thing I've learned from Albemarle, due to its strength in diversity, is that each and every person has the ability to make the world a better place. I know, it sounds like a cliché, but there is still truth in it. On the other hand, the food is fairly ineatable at these schools - maybe if it were to be improved, Albemarle County Public Schools would be in the one percent of schools in the country (but that's not how it works...). Thank you for considering me with this much-needed scholarship and I hope my survey helps those deciding to move into Albemarle County.
