Click here to learn about our visit from the Interquest Detection Canines of North Minnesota.
Thanks to Interquest Detection Canines of North Minnesota for sharing valuable information with our learners about how we utilize drug dogs to keep our school safe. They are the nation’s oldest and largest contraband detection and drug dog service provider, celebrating over a quarter of a century of excellence. They have a proven track record in
- ensuring safety and security in schools.
- minimizing the presence of illegal drugs, alcohol, gunpowder based items and weapons, and abused medications.
- working with staff to maximize our deterrence program.
We learned how the dogs are trained, what the dogs are trained to find, and why the dogs are utilized by Albany Area Middle School and High School. These dogs visit our campus three times each year to keep our schools free of unwanted chemicals.

See what some of our art students are creating so far this year.
Adventures in Art is off to an eye brow raising good time! Students in grades 9-12 are working in this introductory Art course to combine the Elements and Principles of Art into one graphic poster. The challenge of combining all 14 definitions into one poster is complicated as it needs to be visually pleasing as well as illustrative. We are looking forward to our next project in adventures!
