Abilene High school is a good school for being in such a small town. The new remodel is beautiful, and the sports teams do well. Theater is doing great things and the students are hella talented. The high school offers a ton of dual credit which students should take advantage of. Students are overall pretty good and care about the students academically. But, they do have some important faults. The school needs to change the way that they address mental illness. When I was at school there were two suicides and one attempted and the school did a very poor job addressing it.

I've only been in the Abilene Public Schools system since 6th grade (I was in private schooling until end of 5th grade) but I heard horror stories from people I was friends with about how when you get to AHS all the upperclassmen ignore you but that's entirely false. I'm a Junior now myself but I have all kinds of friends among the current Sophomores and Freshmen and I had a whole bunch of friends who were Juniors and Seniors when I was a Freshmen. I mean you have your typical school dynamics but generally most people are really accepting and chill.
This High School is amazing! So many opppurtunities. Good staff. Great teachers. Amazing things have happened while I attended. Graduation from this school is amazing.
