Albany HS Students to address Albany Roundtable - 2/8


After a multi-year hiatus, students from Albany High School’s International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme are once again regular guests at Albany Roundtable Luncheons. Learn from a panel of students what Albany High School means to them at a luncheon on Wednesday, February 8 at the National Register-listed University Club, 141 Washington Avenue at Dove Street in Albany. The meeting is open to the public.

The IB’s programs are different from other curricula because they:
·         encourages students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions;
·         develop independently of government and national systems, incorporating quality practices from research and the global community of schools;
·         encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts; and
·         develop multilingual students.

Presented from the perspective of students and not administrators, a panel of young people will host a data-informed dialogue on Albany High School. The panel will be moderated by senior David Powell, a member of the School’s Community Engagement Team who was inducted into the National Honor Society in 2016. He has attended Albany city schools for the whole of his educational career.


The cost for the luncheon is $20, which may be paid at the door. The Roundtable also offers its guests the option of paying in advance with a credit card at www.albanyroundtable.com. The University Club will serve a hot and cold buffet from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m., with the program commencing at 12:30. 

Reservations for the February 8 luncheon are required by Monday, February 6 and may be made by paying online, by calling 518-431-1400 (the Capital Region Chamber of Commerce) or by sending an e-mail to albanyroundtable@yahoo.com
