St. Albans School Reviews
St. Albans is not for everyone; I’ll start out by saying that. The environment is extremely cutthroat with lots of competition, and many teachers show shameless favoritism. If you’re a high achiever, the school will honor you and you will be known for your accomplishments. At the same time, however, the small nature of the school fosters a toxic environment complete with ridicule and gossip. Be prepared to sleep little and stress a lot. Diversity is average at best. Sports after school will leave you exhausted and with little motivation to work, and to do well, you need to put in the hours. Don’t even get me started on the dorms. Food is garbage and the administration enjoys its authoritarian regime over students. Only good thing to come out of my experience there were a few friendships and college preparedness.
St. Albans changed my life for the better. I learned so many social skills and made very useful friendships. STA teaches people a very important lesson. The lesson of having your brother’s back. STA is an all boys school and that is why I say brothers. I grew up with 3 sisters and I was the youngest in my family. St. Albans gave me the opportunity to have 68 brothers in my class that I knew would always have my back no matter what situation I was in. So all in all, STA is a great school. Despite my shortcomings their academically it taught me how to work hard and thrive in a tough, competitive environment. The friendships I made there are friendships I will have for the rest of my life.
Honestly, this may be the single greatest secondary academic institution in the world. I transferred here from Exeter my sophomore year, and it was the best decision that I have ever made. The culture, the students, and the academics are absurdly strong. My senior year I took a class in abstract algebra, read Ulysses, and did an independent study in statistical thermodynamics. Where else could I do that? If you are accepted here, attend. I was a Harvard physics major and I consider my most formative academic years to be the ones I spent at St. Albans. I cannot say enough so I will stop here, but this is a really special place.
