This school is filled with diversity, clubs, excellent resources, very encouraging teachers and is over all a place where everyone feels as family. To me this school has been such an amazing door opener as I am now entering my senior year. I feel so honored to have been encouraged by such awesome teachers who have shaped me to be the person I am today. Abby Kelley will forever be a place where friends and teachers are like family.
Review Abby Kelley Foster Charter Public School
In the Worcester County District, Abby Kelley has the best education system around. The school is highly diverse and friendly to not only the students but along with the staff. The school isn't a public school but a charter in which it is very difficult to get into. One must be picked from a raffle to start from kindergarten. You are a lucky one if they call you to enter from sixth grade like I. Overall I am very grateful for what that school has done for me like preparing me for the real world, colleges, and challenging me.
Some of my favorite experiences at school would be the events like Pep rallies or Senior night in athletics. This school is unique because it is so diverse. For example, there was a Student Council trip I was taken on and everyone said our school had some many different backgrounds and ethnicities. I would choose this school again because the rules, in my opinon, are probably more strict than most schols in Worcester which makes it easier to focus on your education rather than getting in trouble every other day.
