Abby Kelley Foster Charter Public School Reviews
I participated in the school's International Baccalaureate program and to be honest if I had not I do not believe that going to Abby Kelley would have been worth it. The school does not offer many duel enrollment classes or any AP classes, so IB is the only way to go. IB is a rigorous and hard program and it is not for everyone. If you think IB is for your kid send them to the high school, if not find somewhere else
As a senior, I can honestly say that with the help of my teachers and peers, the opportunities were endless. I was able to participate in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program while also learning about the arts, participating in academic clubs, and varsity sports teams. Abby Kelley prepared me for the future that I hope for.
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 going to school at Abby Kelley Foster because the class sizes were small and I felt as though i could really bond with my teachers. If I could change one thing, it would best to give students more freedom with their appearance. Wearing uniforms is already restricting as it is and having strict rules about our own bodies made it hard to express one self.
the school is okay, I would say that the school is really good academically. They do care about education and think that it is important. They help you prepare for college and help you understand what is needed in order to get ready for college.
Abby Kelley Foster Charter Public School is a school where anyone can come in as they are with their own culture and background and be accepted as who they are. 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.
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.
Great school in terms of education. Admisinistration is very hard-headed however and react to situations impusively as well as overdramatically. Close-knit community, some teachers have no idea what they're taking about while some create great relationships with their students.
The sports have been slacking over the years. I have been around the same people for twelve years so I think I'm lacking a lot of social skills but, this school has it's benefits compared to public schools.
I was there from 4th grade till senior year in my eyes the school was great. the people there are amazing. the school was always clean.
I honestly loved going to Abby Kelley the teachers were great they were all super nice and helped every student possible. I went to Abby Kelley since 4th grade till graduation. I made a ton of friends and you're with the same students through out your time there unless they leave. The education is tough and great.
The best part about High school is being open up to all fronts. For me, junior year and senior year was this moment of diversity. I played varsity soccer and therefore knew a lot of people from the athletics side. In classes, I took two college course classes, which helped me connect with the honors kids around me. Overall, those two years, I made a lot of friends.
Abby Kelley is a great school. I love how involved I am able to be with all the clubs and activities and having a voice. There are many informative assemblies throughout the year as well as fun assemblies. I feel that Abby Kelley gears students up for college and the real world. The staff is very involved with the students and are there for them whenever they are needed. Overall, I have had a fantastic experience at this school and I believe everyone else has too.
I feel safe at this school, just wish the nurse could give more than just water whenI don't feel well.
The extra-curriculars at school are just fine because we aren't really that big of a school. So it makes sense to not have that many options but it would be nice to have just a couple more like student journalism, dance team or something. Just need the right people to step up and make that happen.
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.
Most teachers I have had keep an engaged class and allow students to express themselves. They seem to know a lot about the subject they teach and are able to incorporate real life examples. They are also very approachable and eager to make sure you know the topic the class is studying.
