Although the largest middle school in the district, Albiani continues to be one of the top performing schools and improves each and every year. Fantastic students, parents and staff.

This school is great. Very nice teachers and staff, they take care and make sure the correct placement of the students. If you struggle the teachers will gladly have you and give extra help if you need it. The only way your child doesn't succeed is if he/she are not RESPONSIBLE enough to ask for help.

This school is great, all of the teachers are great. If you struggle through anything just ask your teacher and she/he will help you right away. && you can also get tutor at school. Like on Thursday is math I believe, so come to school at 8ish then get tutor as long as you want til the bell rings. Best thing is that Thursday, you start at 9.

Thsi is a good school if you have a perfect child,w ith no learning problems. However, if your student struggles with learning this is NOT the place for you! Albiani has some of the most uncaring adults working here. This attitude is encouraged by the principal. When they get called on their unprofessionalism, sarcasm rears its ugly head! Too bad. This could be a gret school, but the "professionals" need some attitude adjustments.

In comparison to middle school we transferred from this school is far from an 8. The administrative staff is non responsive and have been very difficult to deal with. However, the student counselors have been very good helping my child adjust and most of her teachers are very nice. If administration would step up my rating would change.

My daughter started middle school this year and she loves to go each day. She has outstanding grades so far and that is enough of an indication, to me, that this is a great school!

This school is one of the best schools a child could go to. The teachers are great. My son was really bad at reading, but his elective, AVID, helped him with his studies and knowhe get 100% on test. I would recommend this school to a parent.

Academically, it's a great school. Teachers are very engaged with the students and go the extra mile by being available for tutoring before school, during lunch, and after school. I also love "School Loop", the online tool that allows parents to check students' grades, assignments, contact teachers, etc.

KAMS does not meet up to expectations. This school is the worst school in the EGUSD.The teachers do not care about the students. Do not send your kids to Albiani

The staff is realy freindly and the people there are only a little nice (Students). The down side is that most students are very immature and kind of easy to make friends here. I wouldnt actually call this school awesome.

This is the best school i have ever gone to. There are many choices you can make, but not to many to where your allowed to leave the school. I have never seen or heard about a mean teacher. I have Mr. Swain (my criminology teacher who is my favortie teacher), Mr. P (he always has a story to tell and by far is the funniest teacher I have ever had), Mr. Allen( He is probably one of my nicest teachers ever, he even plays music of our choice why we work), Ms. Collins ( she is very funny, layed back and is one of my funniest teachers), Ms. Reck ( she is so nice that when I was sick at the end of the first quarter she put my grade as an incomplete so I wouldnt get a bad grade), and finally Ms. Johnson( she is very nice and when we have to make up a run she lets us get out of warm ups and class to make it up). They also have a very nice staff. There are barely any fights and I never (any day) not want to come to school unless im sick of course.

This is our first experience with middle school and from what I've seen, the teachers are very dedicated and really care about the students. There is 'schoolloop' that provides instant communication with the school and families, which is a great tool for keeping up with assignments and school activities.

My child is a first year student (7th grade) at the school and Albiani has exceeded my highest expectations. I really can't say enough good things about our experience here. Great school because of the great teachers and all of the staff. Thanks, and keep doing what you're doing.

Albiani middle school is the best school i have ever been to. when you go there it doesnt feel like school it feels like your going to see your second family. even though i already promoted from albiani. the memories and laughs carries on. while atteding Albiani middle school i had awesome teachers. mr.finney the best teacher in his class i went from far below basic to Advanced in one year. mr. volpendesta and mr.leon they make sure we are safe and having fun in pe everyday. my words cant describe Albiani but if you went there for a day you would feel the same way i did.

Not a good school for children with special needs. Teachers and administrators are rigid and uncaring. Discipline is random and inconsistent. If you have a high-achieving student, he will do well at this competitive school. If your child needs extra help, beware!

I must say I love this school my daughter is there and she is doing exceptionally well. I love that they have homework everyday. And that the Staffs there pay attention to the students and punish them for something like not locking up their lockers. The sad part is we have moved and now I have to transfer her to a closer school. I would recommend this school.

My daughter is part of the first graduating class. Academic programs are very good. The level of dedication and ability of key teachers to connect w/students is often exceptional: Ms. Campbell & Mr Nava (English), Ms. Gale (science); Ms Duvall & Mr Pereira(Social Science-History); Mr. Bradley (PE); Mr DeWalt (Music). Sports teams are really good; great music dept; and parents are quite involved. The coordination between Albiani & Pleasant Grove HS (on other end of the property) is building for a strong future. Both schools demonstrate a strong academic focus. These are 2-year old schools in a great neighborhood, well educated parents and it is being reflected in API testing (top 10% at the High School). In other activities, uninspired direction for student leadership; excellent production by yearbook editor & staff. The Albiani administration has elevated their ability to handle any behavior issues. Very focused and personable principal!
