Abby Kelley is a very diverse school with cultures ranging from African such as Ghana and Asia such as China. Since the school is very small, we, the students, are closer than the other Worcester Public Schools. We form bonds that may last for as long as we live and I believe that Abby Kelley is a great choice of education. Students receive enough attention needed because of the student to teacher ratio and we all have a chance to shine either in sports, clubs and in extracurricular activities.

I like how diverse it is and ho it brings so many students of different colors of skin together to possibly become best friends. When you’re a black student that goes to Abby kelley you forget that when you leave Worcester, the population becomes adamantly white. So, Abby kelley is a really great place to start
I’ve attended AKF since kindergarten, and have always felt encouraged to learn and excel by teachers. In the high school especially, teachers make an effort to understand who we are as individuals and how they can help us to succeed. As in any high school, there are a few people who really shouldn’t be teachers, but the majority of staff are truest wonderful.
