My experience with attending Abilene High School is going good. The teaching staff and administrators are very helpful and respectful. The culture that Abilene has created are memorable and fun. The students are kind and chill. The food is great, especially the salads. The athletic experience that i had with my school is good. The coaches prepare us to play safe and competitive games and races. The overall atmosphere in the school is good. Everyone is nice and treated fairly. I like how everyone is involved in our school spirit. I also like how i feel safe in my own school. I would like to see the school spend more money on athletic gear for all of the sports they offer. Our clubs and school sports are the heart and soul of our school. I would like to see more upgrades towards them. Over all in general the school is a great school to attend. So many helpful people in and out of school.

While attending Abilene High School, I was involved in many activities and classes. I felt as though the sports programs were one of the strongest attributes of the school, whereas the range of classes offered were not. I wish that I could’ve been given the chance to take an economics or statistics class before college while attending high school. After the additions to the school, the facilities were highly improved and made our school more appealing to those on the outside. Sporting events ran more smoothly, and I felt that we were taken more serious.
Some teachers didn't care to be there, but others really strived to help students and were passionate about their subjects. The district was constantly putting sports, specifically boys sports, over the arts, classes, and other extra curricular activities.
