My daughter has been in this school since prek. In the first few year she seemed to love it and learned a lot. Recently since 3rd and 4th grade the curriculum as deteriorated the teachers seem like they don't care she hasn't learned one new thing in the past year. As parents we have tought out daughter more at home than she has learned at school. When inquiring about tutoring services we were led on a goose chase finally realizing there was nothing in place for students who wished to seek more help. We wish to transfer our daughters school as soon as possible

3 of my children went through this school. 2 are in AHS honors. It's been a wonderful experience. (BTW, the 3 is going to 7th grd next year, and is still doing great at ASH).

This is a great school. It is a diverse community with a very active PTA. The facilities are also wonderful. There is a world class afterschool Karate Program with over 70 children, many who have compteted and won national chapionships under the guidance of their instructor. The teachers are very involved in afterschool programs from school plays, to health fairs, to a variety show. There is also a parent-run afterschool chess program. The PTA raises money for a family night in the winter which brings in either a performance or a music/dance program.

Albany School of Humanities is worth applying for. The discipline maintained by the class teacher is good.

This school works if you have no 'learning differences'. The children are receiving too much work with little direction from their teachers. The minority students are not receiving the same quality education as the non-minorities. This school once provided an A+ education but it's slowly deteriorating.

This school has given my daughter a great foundation to continue on both academically and socially. This school promotes self worth and encourages all children to be their best while encouraging them to help others to achieve their goals as well. This school, I'm sure, is one of the best in New York State!
