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 with the higher ups things normally get straightened out one way or another, but overall I love all of my teachers, they're energetic but also informative, and yes, from what I have seen the extracurriculars at the school are great, and if you want to make a new club, then simply get a couple people together and get a teacher to represent you, then you're good to go, I set up a club for my robotics group this way. Yes, I am mostly an A student, so I can't speak all that much for the academic classes and it has surprised me that some years you either take academic or a college class of the subject, no honors, Also the comment about the drugs, that was only one incident, which was then dealt with swiftly, it is not the school's fault if its students decide to deal drugs on the premises, it is the school's fault if they let it continue. Which, they didn't, it was quickly dealt with.
