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.
Because of Common Core, teachers have limited resources in the classroom. The technology 80% of the time does not work and teachers struggle to teach lessons because of students never understanding the lectures. Common Core has really murdered the teaching process, and my teachers always say that they wish they could go back to teaching their own way to where we would actually learn about the subject we are taking, instead of taking 50 billion tests every semester like we do now and that we learn nothing from. Common Core tests us more on memory instead of our intellectual aspects; which is really sad.
There are several clubs, organizations, and sports for who ever wish to join. The National Beta Club is the most well known. There is a large population of students at Abbeville High School that participate year round. Beta Club gives a chance to those who have unique talents that needs to be seen or heard. This is also a great opportunity to be involved outside of school and to give back with the community. As far as sports, most students who join are very competitive in what they do. Sports can range from baseball, softball, soccer, and the most well known of all, football and basketball.
