Extra curricular activities play a big role and include sports, SCA, Key Club, F.A.S.T, DECA, and dozens more.
As far as sports go: The football team is an absolute joke, but other teams aren't half bad. The lacrosse, tennis, and swimming teams are good. Other teams include golf, volleyball, XC, field hockey, basketball, indoor/outdoor track, wrestling, baseball, softball, and soccer.
The most talented of the teams is the drama department. Their performances are award-winning and ranked the best in the state and are among the best in the country
What sets Albemarle apart from other schools the most architecturally is the Breezeway. The Breezeway is a giant courtyard in the middle of the school where students meet between classes for the 8 minute break.
Things stay interesting at AHS. There was a soccer coach arrested for distributing child pornography. There have been additions to the school. The schedule changed to a 4x4. Mostly, the unpredictable weather keeps schedules interesting and constantly changing.
Lately, the biggest addition to the school has been the MESA wing. MESA is a new Math, Science, and Engineering Academy. MESA is an elite program for brilliant students that earn 3 math and 3 science credits over the 2 year period they are committed to the program.
Oh, in that awesome town, Charlottesville?
