About the City School District of Albany

 

Our mission

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community.

 

Our schools

The City School District of Albany is home to award-winning public schools that have been recognized for excellence by the state and federal governments, as well as national publications. Under the leadership of Superintendent Marguerite Vanden Wyngaard, Ph.D., the district is engaged in a strategic effort to become the best urban school district in America in which to learn and work by 2020.

 

Our "2020 Vision" is aligned around a Theory of Action and set of Core Values that guide the work of each of our 1,400 staff members.

 

The district serves 9,000 students in 15 schools: 11 elementary schools, two middle schools, one prekindergarten-grade 8 school and one comprehensive high school. You can find a complete directory in the Our Schools section.

 

Nationally recognized Albany High School features four themed academies, the prestigious International Baccalaureate program and the largest selection of Advanced Placement courses 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.

 

For more information about enrollment, class size, academic programs, magnet schools, food-service programs, athletics, music and the arts, volunteer opportunities and much more, refer to the Albany A-Z section of our site.
