Albemarle County Public Schools Reviews

I've been apart of the county school system since my family moved to Charlottesville in 2005. For the most part, every single teacher that I've had has encouraged me to learn and grow, which made me the person I am today. I have learned many valuable skills that I will be able to carry with me for the rest of my life. At my high school, we have immigrants from all over the world. As a student that works as a tutor, I have worked with English language learners and recently discovered that students that move to the US are required to take standardized tests after one year of residency. I do not agree with this policy because students cannot become fluent in English only after one year. It takes at least five years to become truly fluent in a language. Our school system also encourages getting help for mental illnesses through many special programs offered at the schools.

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.
