I have to say, I have many fond memories so far, but, not all can be good. Bullying is a big thing here, and since it's not always physical teachers don't really care. There are some amazing teachers here! But others just seem to want.you to fail. They give you the bare minimum of what they need to, then you gotta figure the rest out on your own. It's hard when you are trying to balance school and work. I just hope soemthing changes here. Food sometimes is expired. Its gross.

Throughout my time enrolled as a student at Abington Heights High School, my view of the school has been shifted from that of a freshman who believed that homework was unnecessary and unfair, to that of a senior who understands what is truly necessary to prepare students for post-high-school life. Now, being a senior, I try to look at everything from a teacher's point of view. I understand that the workload given to us to complete outside of school is manageable and truly is solely to reinforce our understanding of the information we were taught that day in class. I have heard stories from my older brother, who also graduated from Abington Heights, that when he began classes in university he was much more academically sound than his classmates. Therefore, I believe that AHHS is doing its job well preparing its students for their future plans and careers.
I loved the experience of the Abington Heights School District in general- through Abington Heights High School housed many of of the most influential teachers in my academic years, as well as the friends and family that I hold dearest to my heart. The staff are very open minded- and aided my mental health project- as a initiative to implement mental health education for students, and training for the teachers and other staff members. Overall wonderful experience I will never forget.
