New Albany-Floyd County Consolidated Schools Reviews

30 reviews
All Categories
Attending New Albany-Floyd County Consolidated Schools is a mixed bag. On one hand, the school isn't as well funded as schools in wealthier areas and the lunch is the worst quality I've ever seen. On the other hand, however, the administration makes the best of what they have. With most teachers, you really get the impression that they truly care about their students and are passionate about the subjects that they teach. Some administration and teaching staff even have weekly meetings to make committee based decisions on how to improve their school.

One of the biggest grievances with the school system, however, is the funding disparity from school to school. Schools in wealthier areas such as Floyd Central get much better funding and equipment when compared to schools like New Albany - a school with much poorer students. Floyd Central has more up-to-date textbooks, better technology, and according to one New Albany teacher, Floyd Central even has better desks.

My personal experience with the public schools has been just fine. High school's a bit of a game; don't expect to learn anything in your required classes. If you want to be prepared for college, you MUST take advanced (IB or AP) classes. There were kids in my freshman/sophomore "honors" English classes who would whine about being asked to write a five-paragraph paper and only wanted to read teen fiction. Grade inflation is an enormous problem at NAHS because they want to bump up graduation rates. When I saw certain students who had gotten into National Honors Society, I thought, "That's not fair; they're getting easy A's in regular classes while I'm working ten times as hard to get A's in IB/AP classes." There are lots of students being pushed to go to college who aren't ready or can't afford it. As for the elementary and middle schools, they might get undeserved notoriety because of scandals or poverty rates or whatever, but if you/your kid are/is smart, you/they'll do just fine.
The school system is very nice. Their music system is amazing and at Floyd Central, the students are constantly being encouraged to do better and being offered amazing opportunities. All of our performing arts programs are award winning, particularly our orchestra and theater by winning state last year and by being sent to Nebraska respectfully. The only problem I have with the district is that the arts programs definitely could be funded more, especially with how successful they are.
