Abingdon High School Reviews

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!
For me it was between homeschooling or high school. My parents decided to send me to public school since I could continue my career in band. Fortunately, the band director there was excellent, and taught me more about life than I have from any other teacher. The online classes are relatively easy to take as well (as long as you can get through the morons running guidance). The english teachers are most likely the best part about this school, however. Not a single one comes to mind when I try to find a faulty one. This can't be said about the math department or the science department, but if you have a child who writes stories / poems / anything literary oriented, this is the school for you.
