My experience at New Albany High School was unsatisfactory. The school is extremely unclean and nasty, and sometimes i would go in the cafeteria and the food would have visible mold on it. In recent years, the school has been in the news for numerous reasons including fights, bedbugs and jumpings. The administration, turns their heads away from the problems convincing themselves that there is not a problem, when clearly there is. Bullying is a huge issue at this school and often is ignored by staff. To fully understand the issues at the school, you have to live in it as i did. I am truly grateful that i had to opportunity to get out of the environment after my time there.

A Proud Tradition Opening in 1853, New Albany High School, as the state s first public high school, has a long and rich tradition of alumni achievement and support. In August 1986, a challenge was issued to the members of the classes of 1936 1/2, 1937, and 1937 1/2. The challenge was to create a fund to act as an aid to deserving NAHS students or groups of students to help them accomplish their educational goals. Through this initiative, the NAHS Alumni Memorial Fund and the NAHS Alumni Association were created. Since that time, the Memorial Fund has awarded thousands of dollars in classroom grants that directly impact students, as well as stipends to recognize National Merit Finalists. A more recent accomplishment is the establishment of the NAHS Hall of Fame. Into the 21st Century As we enter the 21st century, now is the time for NAHS alumni to continue the fine example of those who went before us and make sure that a vibrant, thriving alumni association continues to bring benefits to NAHS long into the future.

New Albany High School offers over 100 courses, including the IB diploma, as well as diverse extracurricular offerings. The private religious schools in the area don't offer even half of what NAHS offers. In addition, the staff and school leadership are dedicated to the students and want them to do their very best. If your child wants to excel, New Albany High School is the place for your student.

NAHS tries it's best to accommodate students and teach new things. It's the students that don't show the desire to learn that's when the teachers don't feel as if all that they are saying is being cherished in the students brain. NAHS is a great school to go to, there might be problems with students but you can't change the way a person is and blame it on the school when they're trying their best. Our education is getting better and and we are trying to improve everything the best we can.

This is one the best schools in Indiana. The athletic system and the teachers are advanced. Some of the teachers can have attitudes, but is a very good school.

I think New Albany High School is not a very good school to send your child to when it comes to getting a quality education. Thyey lack equal treatment of teaching students to get a decent education based on racial gender. I feel that the staff and its administration are very bias in terms of who's trying to acheive and who's not trying to acheive an education. I reccommend that you research other schools or make a conscience decision on what school your childs attends.

I have a senior at NAHS now, and I feel she is getting a very good education. I think the same things are wrong with the school are the same things that were wrong when I went there. The lower skilled kids (not special ed), kind of fall through the cracks. They go out into the world with very few skills to offer the community.

I feel if they would enforce the dress code and work more to make sure the kids can read and understand what they are reading, it would be a better school. But they make the rules and then don't hold them up.

NAHS, in my opinion, is one of the best high schools I've seen. Their drama, art, and music courses add culture and an oppertunity for students to express themselves. NA has numerous honors and AP courses for all of their students willing to work, and a wonderful special education program as well. The athletics here are outstanding and teach the young adults work ethics, teamwork, and leadership skills. There are just so many wonderfull oppertunities for our children to take advantage of at this school. I wish I had had a high school like New Albany.

I have some concerns about this school. There are excellent teachers in some areas, some areas have deficits. Parent involvement is not encouraged by administration. There should be more interest placed on quality education of students. This school would benefit from a change of focus.

New Albany High School is an outstanding educational facility. Educational offerings range from Honors,AP, College prep, to regular classes. Vocational programs and special needs classes round out a full curriculum. Specialized programs include a nationally top ranked R O T C program, award winning Theatre Department, outstanding choral and orchestra departments and a 3000 watt FM radio station and cable channel T V station. Horticulture classes, art classes covering photography, drawing, sculpture, and media design are all part of the New Albany High School package. Sports include 19 activities for boys and girls and state championship banners include Boys and Girls basketball, Soccer, Tennis, and individual champions in all sports. The most impressive charactoristic of N A H S is: Every Student is Treated with respect and given the opportunity to succeed, regardless of race, religion, social or economic standing or family name. New Albany High School provides a great education.

New Albany High School is a decent school. It has it's ups and downs. It has some decent academic programs that are mostly for older students-- the Juniors and Seniors. I feel that the school spends too much of its time participating in music, art, sports, and extra-curricular activities. There are not very many programs for younger students such as the Freshman and Sophomores, though. There needs to be an increased amount of involvement with them. There is not a lot of parent involvement either. I think that this school has its priorities mixed up. It's a nice school, but it could be a lot better.

I have had two sons graduate from NAHS (2000 & 2002)with Academic Honors, needless to say the teaching is excellent. I still have one son attending who is doing excellent also. NAHS also has a variety of athletics which should interest most students.

My daughter is a senior at NAHS. She had previously attended a private school, K-8. I have been extremely pleased with the education at NAHS. The extracurricular activities offered are tremendous, and she has had wonderful teachers. We will miss the school!

I have serious concerns about overcrowding and the use of teachers not familiar with the subject they are teaching. The teacher to student ratio is very misleading. Teachers do not return phone calls probably because of the student to teacher ratio.

Our school is the best! I have a special eduacation child, and this school goes the extra mile at every step of the way. I also have another child that is going into NAHS this fall, and I am positive that she will be treated the best also! Go Bulldogs!
