Like any other high school, its not perfect. There were bad days and there were good ones. Sometimes we hated one another. However, at the end of the day we were and are family. We usually got a bad reputation around the community, but i wouldnt choose any other high school to attend . I truly believe we have the smartest , most kind and talented students. The administration was excellent and always willing to lend a helping hand. It saddens me to know in less than two months ill be graduating, but the memories will always be in my heart .

Actually this year we became an A school! As a sophomore, I'm still learning the atmosphere. Yet, for sure our school spirit can outshine any school! Most teachers always offer tutoring and eager to help student for success. We may not be the most famous schools in the country but, we are continuing to be the best school as we can be.
Abbeville High was an okay school. By that, I mean that most teachers had their favorites. They picked and chose who they wanted to succeed. Because of common core being introduced, almost all students and teachers were put in a very difficult situation. They did nothing to help better our chances of getting into a good school.
