12 Parent Reviews for Albemarle High School

As a parent of a 9th grader there, I was of course concerned that the school be engaged with me and have a plan set up to make the transition an easy one. I have received neither. From summer assignments that were unclear or not even handed out to some children, to no regular access to teachers it ...  Read more

I am a rising senior at Albemarle High School, and while I do agree that the school has some short comings, I would like to point out that no school is perfect. Hence the reasoning for my 4/5 star review as opposed to 5/5. There are a few incompetent teachers at the school, though if you bring it up ...  Read more

Our two daughters, academically strong and from an affluent family did very well at AHS. Lots of AP options, talented teachers, good athletics and an outstanding art/music/drama program. Admin is so-so and has not been wholly stable. We were really very happy there. I just read many of the negative ...  Read more

Western Albemarle High School is an excellent school compared to Albemarle High School, AHS has a drug issue & sever overcrowding & an overall terrible reputation.

Albemarle is a good school, however, the school is too crowded and your student is likely to be lost in the shuffle if they aren't A+ students.

As a military family, we have experienced several school systems across the country. This school, and the community and parent support it receives, is outstanding!

I agree with the posting of October 10th. The school climate is one that does not support the student who is 'marked as middle'. The school only offers AP, Honers and then an Academic level. This Academic level class does not support the college bound 'B' student, but is there is support the achivement ...  Read more

I had 2 children in Albemarle HS. There are some teachers there who are very talented. However, the school is too crowded & the student-teacher ratio is pushing the limits. There were times I sent emails to teachers & because they're so overwhelmed, they couldn't email back within the prescribed 24-48 ...  Read more
