About the City School District of Albany

 

Our vision

The City School District of Albany will be a district of excellence with caring relationships and engaging learning experiences that provide equitable opportunities for all students to reach their potential.

 

Our mission

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to work in partnership with our diverse community to engage every learner in a robust educational program designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for success.

 

Our goals

  • Increase student achievement in early literacy, close the achievement gaps and increase graduation rate by focusing on the unique factors that impact student success.

  • Enhance the delivery of quality instruction by providing our teachers and staff with high-level, meaningful professional development to promote student growth and proficiency.

  • Build our leadership capacity and increase accountability through ongoing professional growth opportunities designed to improve effective leadership in our organization.

  • Empower families to support the success of their children through relationships of mutual respect and clear and effective communication.

  • Partner with our diverse community, including local businesses and community leaders, to engage and empower stakeholders in the wrap-around services needed to support our students

Our schools

Led by Superintendent Kaweeda G.Adams, the City School District of Albany and its more than 1,600 faculty and staff strive to provide an academically challenging, safe and welcoming experience for all students.

 

The district serves nearly 9,700 students in 18 schools: 12 elementary schools, three middle schools, an alternative-education program for middle- and high-school students, the Albany International Center serving refugee and immigrant students in grades 6-12, and Albany High School, a comprehensive high school with a career and technical center. You can find a complete directory in the Our Schools section.

 

Albany High features four themed academies, the prestigious International Baccalaureate program and one of the largest selections of Advanced Placement courses offered in the Capital Region.

 

At the elementary level, the district offers full-day prekindergarten at every school and at several community locations, and outstanding school-choice options that include three theme-based magnet elementary schools, the Dual Language Program and open enrollment options across the district.
