Abbeville High School Reviews
Abbeville High School has been an overall wonderful experience for me over the last four years. I have grown and matured so much thanks to the teachers and other students that go there. I have really enjoyed the amount of effort that all of the teachers have put into trying to prepare me for what is next in my life. I will forever be grateful for all of the many opportunities that Abbeville High School has given me. From the athletics to the schoolwork Abbeville has proved year in and year that they are all about the well being and care of each and every student.
There are some exceptional teachers at Abbeville High School, but sadly the school suffers from being located in a rual southern town. The school is old and broken down in a few places. There is a strong presence of athletics, especially football, as the football team has been dominant in the state as the football champions for many years. However, the acadmeics overall are fairly average.
My experience at Abbeville High School throughout my high school career has been outstanding. I love how Abbeville High is small-scaled and based around the "A" tradition. I strongly believe that Abbeville High School has provided me with a strong academic foundation needed to attend an university despite its poverty. I utilized the opportunities offered to me at Abbeville High to the best of my abilities. Although there are limited opportunities available to students due to the district's finances, one can truly receive an excellent education at Abbeville High School. Abbeville's faculty, staff, and students make their school a conducive learning environment for everyone. I am proud to be a Panther!
Aside from the few teachers who care about their students, the faculty is very "distanced" from student activity. The cafeteria food is non-nutritious, served in minimal quantities, and disgusting. Most school funding goes to the football program, and there is little to no funding for the arts. Along with the multitude of problems, Abbeville High School is old and an unsuitable learning environment.
Abbeville High School is a great school. It's been around for a very long time. The staff is nice and the school lunch is horrible. There are always the positives and negatives when it comes to high school. The teachers are good at teaching but relationships with the students aren't build. The clubs and activities aren't a big thing. They get no attention when compared to the sports department. All of the sports don't get a fair share of attention. All of the other sports are overlooked when it comes to football. This is a very tradtional school and tradition is what they are all about. Out of the four years that i have attended abbeville high school there has been a lot of changes in the administration. There have been a lot of rule changes. Being in a small town there is not enough money and not enough resources.
This school is all around horrible, clean sources of water are very rare, we are served little to nothing in food amount and everyone at the school have expressed their feelings of this school. The water is brown is some areas of the school, the walls most likely contain mold. it's just all around horrible, this is coming from a freshman at this very school.
The teachers and staff are wonderful. I am so thankful to be apart of Abbeville High School. The only change I would like is for there to be a better selection of food.
This school is very big on sports especially football and basketball . As far as clubs and other organizations besides operation beautiful which was a group for girls that empowered them and boosted their confidence and self esteem , and beta club it was little interaction when it came to those things.
Like I recently stated It wasn't hard to pass any class, course or curriculum . Basically you you have to do is be present , participate , do good on tests and or quizzes. A lot of hands on core materials were taught and benefited the students a lot.
My very best experience at this school was when we had play and in this play I had the opportunity to sing . That experience really allowed me to let my guard down and allowed me to be comfortable around people. This school was unique and still is unique because of the way they allow students to express themselves. A student voice never went unheard when it came down to decisions or ideas . If I had the choice to I would do another four years at this school .
The teachers at my past school were very concerned and involved in a lot of student matters. Their main priority was the basic needs of the student. Every teacher I had seemed to not only help as much as they could but they made sure that what we learned stuck with us. The teachers really put in time to accompany everyone's learning style and those styles varied from visual , hearing , and hands on learning. Grades differed because of the many activities we were to do but in the end the grades would add up and truth be told it was very hard to fail or to be failed because basically all you have to do is keep your notes , pay attention , participate , do good on tests and or quizzes. Communication skills was very intact they used varies ways and methods to communicate with parents and students so their was no excuse ! .
Since our school is very old, we have major mold problems that have put many people's health in danger. Other than that, our school seems to be pretty safe.
Our football team is very recognized & has an enormous support system.
Most teachers put in their personal time to help students when needed.
There isn't really cliques or anything. Everyone pretty much can get along very good. Peer pressure isn't really that big, everyone just does whatever.
We don't really have that much help with college resources.
