Abington Senior High School Reviews

The teachers make this school; they are interactive with the students and work with you when you need them. In every class, you end up making a niche group of friends that carry on through the school year alongside you.
Those groups are what keeps you sane and collected in a teaching environment.
Smaller clubs and activities often go unnoticed, such as the FBLA program run by the business chairman; they deserve the recognition they deserve, seeing as how I truly only understood what FBLA was in my senior year when I participated.
Review Abington Senior High School
Our two older kids graduated from Abington in 2015 and 2017. They were able to take a variety of AP classes and both benefited from a really solid music program. It was so impressive to see the love that so many graduating seniors show for the band, orchestra, and choral music teachers--they clearly deeply value the time they are able to spend with these men and women and the investment the teachers make in them.
Personally I feel like I've excelled at abington, of course every school has its flaws. Abington doesn't have air conditioning which is a hard environment to take finals in when the room is 90 degrees. But other than the AC problem and their large focus on athletics over their arts programs, abginton tries to provide their students with as many resources as they can to be successful.
