I was never really challenged academically here until 8th grade. My math skills improved amazingly by mid 7th grade and a few of the teachers and my counselor came up with the idea of moving me into advanced math. We went though with this and it was wonderful. I had to work, I had to study, etc. The teachers at Roosevelt made me feel horrible about myself and especially in math and language arts. So that is why this didn't happen sooner. The teachers at Abbott are amazing, they truly care about you and your well-being. Fun events were organized, more so in 8th grade. I made lifelong friends here and great memories.
