Albemarle County Public Schools Reviews
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.
I went to Albemarle County Public Schools from kindergarten all the way through senior year of high school and I enjoyed my experience. They have quality education that prepares students for both college and the “real world.” What made my experience as a student within the Albemarle County school system extra special were the teachers who We’re passionate about what they did and actually cared about helping the students succeed. These public schools also cared about fine arts, sports, and extracurriculars so that all students could explore/find their passion.
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!
