About Eagle Point Elementary School

The former Public School 27 was remodeled in 2005 as part of the City School District of Albany's sweeping plan to renovate or rebuild every elementary school. When the building reopened in January 2006, it was christened Eagle Point Elementary School in honor of its location near the highest point in the City of Albany.


Eagle Point serves approximately 300 students, and its small size allows teachers and administrators to create a cozy environment where programs can be individualized to meet students' specific needs. The school's mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that develops and promotes a diverse community of confident lifelong learners.
