Greater Albany Public School District Reviews

I loved my time in the GAPS school district. I graduated in 2017 from West Albany High School, and I have a younger sister attending the school now. The school culture is absolutely beyond compare; the two rival schools came together multiple times for community support, and there are many opportunities to reach out and serve the city of Albany. The biggest area needed of needed improvement is quality of facilities. The schools were built in the 1950s, and the buildings have been updated only a few times after that. However, with the recent passing of a million-dollar bond in Albany, the buildings will likely be updated soon!

I’ve been a student at West Albany High School since I was a freshman and this year will be my third. So far the academics are good, but I feel as if it could be taught in better ways. The environment and people are very nice, but the school building is literally falling apart and I don’t believe that is safe. I think the school has good potential, it just needs a little more.
GAPS was a pretty good school district. I graduated from West Albany. They had very good college classes, and academically, they were pretty good. My biggest complaint is the emphasis they put on all the sports, especially football. But I from my understanding they've always been like this, putting sports above everything else.
