    Overall Experience: My overall experience at Albany High School was pretty decent. My favorite experiences had to be being on the student leadership team and being apart of the varsity soccer team. Albany high is unique because it is the oldest school in the city. We also have the highest improvement score out of all the schools.

    Teachers: The teachers at Albany High School are 50/50. You have some of them who are only there to get a paycheck, but you also have those who genuinely care about you and your success. Most of the teachers are very knowledgeable in the subjects that they teach in. Just because someone is knowledgeable doesn't mean that they are approachable. Overall the school is decent and has its good nd bad just like any other high school.
