Abington Heights High School Reviews
Review Abington Heights High School
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.
Teachers at this school care about their students. Sometimes they joke around but they take teaching very seriously. The teachers I have had, I have loved being in their class. The teachers are very relatable, calm, approachable and caring. They slow down for struggling students when necessary. Their lessons they teach are lessons that can be experienced in the real-world. The homework, grading and assessments are reflective of the lessons. The teachers take time to help the students and assure that they understand what is being taught. Overall I love this school and they taught me everything I know now.
When it comes to I.D. badges, the school requires everyone to wear them, but that does very little when it comes to safety, in my opinion. We do one, maybe two fire drills over the course of the school year, one lock down drill, and one random drug dog search. However, over the past 4 years I've attended we've had one bomb threat and one shooting threat. In both circumstances, the school refused to close the district to keep students out of school. You can only imagine how many students and parents were terrified, the whole community was terrified, and yet the school did NOTHING to keep students out of school. Of course many parents made their children stay home and take the "Unexcused Absence"on their attendence record. No information was put out the night before about the actions being taken by police. It was in school, the day the threats were supposed to take place, that the administration announces in an assembly that "we have everything under control." If anything, the school's administration should have notified parents and students and kept us informed, rather than not saying anything at all. Although nothing ever did happen, during the times of those threats no one felt safe, and school remained silent, which scared everyone even more.
