I came to ACPS, specifically Monticello High School in my 10th grade year and I couldn’t be happier! Now a graduating senior, I was encouraged to follow my dreams of acting by my incredible teachers and counselors. I’ve been able to be involved in many clubs, and be the president of a few, and I’ve been a lead every year in our musical. This school truly has been the most welcoming, diverse, and caring community I’ve ever been in.

it's generally good, but the building is not great. The administration is always trying new things, which is pretty hit or miss- sometimes a much more effective schedule, sometimes making chaotic "garage" classrooms with 60 kids and two teachers. This usually ends with one teacher teaching, and the other doing nothing. but there are some great communities, and innovations. for instance, the peer tutoring center is wonderful!
Albemarle County Schools are great, mostly because of its teachers. All through both of my child’s school careers, the teachers were able to do so
much with very little in terms of resources and support. Administrators lack support from the county level. The arts thrive at the high school level, despite the fact that there is no importance placed on them at the lower levels. Emphasis is on college prep. More attention is being brought to workforce prep and entering the military. Teachers receive no formal feedback from students.
