Re-Imagining Albany High School

Board approves environmental review process required for facilities project

The City School District of Albany Board of Education gave its approval July 17 to move forward with an environ-mental review required for a facilities project as it continues the process of planning for the future of Albany High School.

 

The State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) requires a review of potential environmental impacts for a building renovation or construction of a new facility. Both options remain under consideration for Albany High.

 

Please visit our Re-Imagining Albany High School section for more information.

Con-GRAD-ulations Class of 2014!!!!

Falcon Pride was on full display Sunday as the Albany High School Class of 2014 celebrated graduation at the University at Albany's SEFCU Arena.

 

From Class President Denis Leon urging that his classmates "never forget that unconquerable spirit that goes with being a Falcon," to the the familiar "Allll-bany" chant as the grads prepared to exit the auditorium as a class for the final time, the members of the Class of 2014 moved on to the next stage in their lives proud of the high school journey that helped them get here.

 

Forham-bound valedictorian Andrew Tarwerdi, a National Merit Scholarship recipient, and Cornell-bound salutatorian Elana Cohen also addressed their classmates. Visit our District News section to read more. You also can click here to view a Photo Gallery of the day's events.

 

And, as Cohen noted -- Con-GRAD-ulations everyone!
