    "My daughter is graduating from AAG and it has been a social nightmare. While the school's mantra is "family", that couldn't be further from the truth. A lot of smoke and mirrors as far as academics are concerned and there are no solid connections. It's just not that nice and it's small so it's difficult to escape the nepotism and phoniness. I can't tell you how many people have told me they can't even drive past the school once their kid graduates.If you are considering this school, I would recommend talking to real people who have sent their kids that have graduated rather than new parents who are still drinking the hopeful kool-aid. If you become involved, it's easy to believe all that this school is trying to sell because you so much want it to be true. After all your child is attending and you are paying for it. Again my recommendation is to find actual people who attended who are not on the board or have no vested interest in "selling" the school."

    "The Albany Academies adequately prepared me for college. I easily transitioned to the new environment and found the new workload fairly easy to manage, while competing at the Division 1 level. This is thanks to the rigorous work and compassionate teaching by those at Academy. I do think the school could improve upon it's social environment and better meet the social emotional needs of it's students, as well as their academic/athletic needs. I attend Academy for 12 years and, although the school environment does not fit my personality and if given the choice I might have picked a different school, it did give me a strong foundation for college and the years beyond."

    "Great teachers and different traditions from normal school are only a small portion of what makes this school unique. I love the fact that it is not all boys or all girls all of the time, and that some classes are co ed. I also love having all single gender classes as well, i believe The Academies offer the perfect mixture of both. The only reason i rate 4 stars is because of the staff. There are too many staff on payroll, and no one has any answers to everyday questions, such as how to get additional scholarships. I found out from a class mate that you take it when you talk your entrance exam, but staff failed to tell us this. Other than that, i couldn't be happier with the school itself."

    "It really depends on the teacher. The fact is, your education in a particular subject could differ WILDLY depending on which teacher you get, even if they're teaching the same class. There are plenty of phenomenal teachers who are willing to help students and genuinely care about their jobs; however, there are a few teachers who REALLY need to reconsider teaching. Teachers are good overall, there are certainly more good than bad"
