Hi

Out of curiosity, can someone tell me about zip 12206? Is that a good area to live in Albany? I recently saw a property listing online in that area but never been there. I like to know what are the best schools MS and HS in Albany. I have 2 teens, and schools are important to me as well as safety.
Thanks

I've heard good and bad about Albany HS. Mostly bad. I don't think a school should need metal detectors and armed guards. But I live in a rural area where there was no need for that.

Albany High wouldn't be a choice school for most parents. It's definitely a city/urban school and one of the rougher schools in the area. Now, some of that depends on perspective - it probably isn't on the same level as a rough inner city school in the Bronx.

I'm not sure about that zip code - do you know a nearby intersection? There are definitely nice and safe areas in Albany to live, but the high school isn't the greatest.

I'd look at districts like the North Colonie, Guilderland, South Colonie, Niskayuna, Schuylerville, Saratoga Springs and East Greenbush districts, among many good districts in the area.
