The school gives me lots of opportunities to better myself in every way. They have lot of resources that a student can go to if you are struggling academically and the extra help is always nice. They have a lot of clubs that any student can join and I, myself, love participating in all of the various clubs. The teachers and principals are very caring and love what they do. They are so helpful!

Amazing, helped shaping me into the great student/person that I am today. I personally joined the track and field & cross country my sophomore & junior year and swimming my senior year and I've got to say I grew alot as a person and got better at the sport during the seasons. There's a lot of support from your teammates & coaches and a lot of team & school spirit. I'm simply very glad I got to be a part of the Abington School District for these past three years.
Throughout my four years, I really enjoyed the opportunities I was given to get involved around my school. I loved the fact that we had a sense of freedom and self expression in our art classes and clubs. My favorite part of Abington is the student council and administration that I got the pleasure to work with as president of the club. I would change the dress code so that it does not target girls in the way it does, however, I did enjoy my time at Abington Heights.
