Abington Friends School Reviews

Abington Friends School is a school for people who really want to think deeper, which I think is a strength and a fault. There are a lot of opportunities to speak up and express yourself, with a lot of writing in all subjects but Math, and I've already noticed that I'm able to express myself better than I was before. For someone who really loves English and the Humanities, Abington Friends School is one of the best out there. For people who don't like these subjects, AFS can be really challenging. I think this is something to keep in mind. There is a lot of homework, with a lot of writing, and I love it, but some of my friends really don't. For those who do, though, I'd strongly recommend becoming a Roo!

Extracurriculars at AFS are great. The clubs offered range from affinity (ex: BSU and GSA) to social action (ex: PRIDE) to academic (ex: athletes) to just pure fun (outdoor adventure club)! Our most thriving area is our Diversity Program, which is open to all school student participation. The Diversity Program plans lots of activities for the school that include critical conversations, social action, and community planning. Through the sports requirement, the sports teams at AFS form super close bonds with each other in order to succeed to the best of their abilities. Each team is close-knit and invests in sportsmanship, dedication, and teamwork. Our theater program has won many awards including CAPPIES Best Play Award. It's a truly great experience for actors, back stage helpers, lighting experts, and set designers.
The teachers at Abington Friends School are the best! They get to know the students well over many years of interacting with them as teachers, coaches and mentors. These strong relationships means the school is a safe place to broaden your thinking, challenge yourself, and grow academically. I am tremendously happy to partner with such talented teachers in the raising of my children.
