Abingdon High School Reviews

The faculty and staff aren’t accommodating. I often feel as if I’m an inconvenience in their day. The teachers are okay, most are very helpful. Some, however, are not. It’s really a hit or miss type of school, and there’s not a lot of consistency. There is definitely favoritism among certain sports such as Football. To me, I believe the entire county’s activities (sports, clubs, chorus, band, etc.) are unfairly funded. The funds aren’t evenly or even fairly distributed. Overall, I would say Abingdon High is an okay school, but like most schools, it has its flaws and needs work in some areas.

Abingdon High School is the largest in Washington County, which makes people think that it is and should be the best school academically. Those people would be correct. Abingdon High School is a welcoming place where students can find refuge in their classes and work and really learn and flourish into educated, contributing members of society. Students are given the chance to demonstrate and use their strengths. Also be made aware of and potentially better their weaknesses. The school staff is helpful and willing to assist any way possible to better the education of the students enrolled. Will our wide hallways, friendly teachers, and open doors, one would never guess there are about 950 students ranging from ninth grade to twelfth. I will truly miss Abingdon High School and all of the teachers that helped me grow into the person I am now.
As a high school senior, I have experienced a lot at Abingdon High School. My favorite part about this school is how engaging the teachers are with the students. In most of my classes, I have a personal relationship with my teachers. In my opinion, Abingdon High could be improved by raising the difficulty level of classes. I feel as though I could be more challenged in most of my classes!
