    "OUr son just started this school after being in another country for a year. While we he was of course hesitant at first, all the worried melted away as he met his teacher and made new friends. The teacher has a great approach with these 5th graders, easing them into homework and providing lots of firm support. This school really feels like a neighborhood school and now after one month we are comfortable with him walking to and from school by himself. There is no price you can pay for the security of both the school and the neighborhood. I know of so many other places where no parent would allow their ten year old to walk by himself. For me the entire experience of school, neighborhood, and kids living hear by are unparalleled. One person pointed out that while Albany is and expensive place to live, our taxes are paying for what is really a standard you find in private schools. GO PUBLIC SCHOOLS!"

    "Great school with caring teachers and staff. The principal has always been very responsive to issues related to our son. The school does a great job at conflict mediation, though lacks resources for proper yard supervision. Cornell has a strong community due in part to regularly planed community building events. Class size could be a little smaller and while the school has done a great job at offering extracurricular programs on campus, school/donation-based enrichment programs are at risk of being cut and quality of programs by outside organizations is not always great. But, a good option. Big plus: this is a very LGBT-friendly school with a solid LGBT parents group. Kudos."

    "Cornell is a neighborhood, community, public school where kids and family come together from the walking school bus, school garden planted and harvested by students/families and fund and fun raising events. Many of the families at the school are also local business owners that support the school and community. The principal is 120% committed to the students and the PTA has helped cover the gaps left by the state edu budget crisis. I see more and more families who have moved to Albany from San Francisco, Berkeley and around the world to be part of this high functioning public school."
