Albuquerque Public Schools Reviews

It was a very generic experience. There were some good teachers, the kind that made you want to do something with your life. Then you had the teachers just trying to get by. Luckily, I had more of the former rather than latter. The books we received were all very old and damaged, I recall getting a physics book with the cover falling off. I had to duct tape it back together. Overall, I think the district just doesn't have the funds required to give the students proper materials, especially considering all extra curricular activities are funded from donations.
Review Albuquerque Public Schools
I have attended schools in the Albuquerque Public Schools District for 13 years and it has been good. I feel as if I have had an education that has prepared me for college and have had countless opportunities to further my knowledge in many topics and subjects. Through dual credit and AP classes, there are many chances for for college prep. One thing that I would change is too see more student involvement at the school and district level. Letting students be able to voice their opinions on certain matters will give the administration more ideas on what to fix.
The Albuquerque school system is quite average I would say. There is nothing special about it. When I was attending I believe the school system was either last or second to last in the whole country for education. I had poor experience overall, the students, most of the faculty, the lunches, everything. We once had a rumor that there was going to be a shooting at our school, thankfully it was just a rumor. I never felt safe there, I still don't feel safe living here. Average is the word I would use to describe the Albuquerque Public School system. We shouldn't be having an under performing school system, but it seems like we've lowered our standards so we can't expect anything more.
