Going to Abilene High is a big deal especially if you have lived in Abilene your whole life. Forbid that you go across town to Cooper. Going to school at Abilene High made me the person I am today. Bleeding Black and Gold, but never Blue and Red. Abilene High is known for West Texas Football, the Friday Night Lights, the huge pep rallies, but the infamous blackout pep rally. Abilene high is a huge family, but honestly our admin is not so strong. I have had 2 principals in the past 4 years, and now graduating there is going to be a new principals. All my junior friends will now be on their 3rd principal! That's a little insane, and a really big change. But like I said, Abilene High is a family.
Review Abilene High School
I like life at abilene high mostly because of band and that I'm in mostly higher academic classes. But in my regular classes there are obvious discrepancies that no one deals with. Half the time teachers allow their students to be rude and disruptive during class. Also, the school is too cheap to buy anything. The printer in the work room goes out every few months but they won't buy a new one. Most of the science teachers are horrible but they've been there forever so they get to keep their jobs even though they don't teach anything. However, the AP teachers obviously care much more and put in way more effort to educate their students.
I loved going to Abilene High. While being in percussion & varsity orchestra while taking college prep classes & AP courses was challenging, teachers, directors, & tutors helped me get my work done. As a community, AHS really loved by E-POWER until my Senior year. It was a heart to heart, you could say, that teachers and students & the entire class, for that matter, where required to have that really brought up interesting discussions & different perspectives on certain topics. I'll miss AHS, but once an eagle, always an eagle.
