Abington Heights High School Reviews
As an upper level student, I have learned that, though AH appears to be a normal public school, if you invest in your education at this school the support and resources will be available. There are very high level classes with well qualified teachers, and college readiness is at a very high level.
I can name a few select teachers that are truly so helpful, caring, and do their job very well. However, a lot of the teachers are not respectful to students, lazy when it comes to grading, and do not seem to care about struggling students. I have watched different students go up to different teachers asking for help during convenient times in class, and their response was either to go and look it up yourself or ask a friend. Many teachers are unreasonable in planning assignments, grading, and testing. Many times rubrics and guidelines are unclear and unprofessional. I have seen teachers use phones and text during class, teachers losing assignments and tests, and disrespect students in front of a class. Overall there are a few great, knowledgable, and helpful teachers, however many of them lack knowledge, understanding, care, respect, professionalism, and efficiency. I truly believe that many of the teachers should not be teachers, period. I think that many teachers should use their knowledge in a different career.
The school has always tried it's best with everything. From choosing which teachers to sports and other activties having to be outstanding. They work hard so that students know what and where their going to go after high school. They clearly want to try and help every student succeed. From their college readiness classes and FCS where we learned how to be an adult. I have loved every teacher during my high school career thus far and im happy to be within the district. The only critique I have for the district is that this current year they made a lot of cuts from programs within the building. I understand that money is the issue and that it was needed but all in all programs might be hurt in the long wrong. Overall I love the school
