Albuquerque Public Schools Reviews
Albuquerque Public schools is currently under poor management. APS does not understand how to improve academic results in their students or improve their motivation to learn and prosper in their schools. However not everything is their fault, teachers are limited and so there would be no possible way replacing the terrible ones. On the other hand, facilities and food are very poor. Personally, my high school suffers in its' quality of facilities and campus the most, having recently put in an outstanding science and math building is it's only saving grace.
I loved and still love the band program. I especially like the drive of the teachers despite financial setbacks. A lot of money is often pushed into sports (when available) so it leaves a lot needed for band and music overall. This then falls on a lot of fundraising to be able to show your talent and hard work at nearby functions like showcases. This also takes more then it's fair share of involved parents which only the strong survive. In the end it's all worth it for the finished product. I would love to see all this avoided by more funding for the APS wide music program. Also for specifically getting children that are elementary aged involved early on in music like theory, chorus, or instrument. Also to put more funding into our public high school bands and show pride and tradition in marching bands who are the vital part of our sports and sports support. Pep tunes!
I would like to see a bigger involvement with the teachers and the students. What I mean by this is, in my years of school there has always been an underwhelming amount of people whom enjoy a given teacher. This has a few exceptions but if there was a system to get the student teacher relationship closer then the school experience would be far more enjoyable. One way we can try to help this cause us to limit the class size of certain classes to improve the teachers ability to connect with every student.
