    Extracurriculars: The school is well known for its band and it`s the best extracurricular activity to be in, in my opinion.

    Teachers: We have some teachers that just don't do anything to help their students and they see that everyone don't pass their test or exams and still will not change their teaching style but then we have some teachers that change up their styles so everyone can learn and have fun learning.

    Academics: Albany High has some of the most hardworking and passionate teachers and it doesn't matter how bad you don't want to do the work or tired Ms. Melanie Dale and Mrs. Karen Milner are two of the best and awesome teachers the DCSS has ever had. But Albany High has some teachers that are too focused on the school and busy with the administrative staff that they do not teach at all and try to do things for the school and make it tie with a lesson they made up that had nothing to do with their class. All I'm saying is that the 2013-2014 AP Language teacher does not need to teach and be apart of the administrative staff if she can't handle both jobs.
