Abington offered a range of opportunities for students of all interests; as a language person, I found my niche in the language departments, but I could still dip my toe into everything from music to chemistry and receive a phenomenal education. Students receive strong support and preparation whether they're heading for a four-year university or the workplace, and they have a say in the opportunities offered, often forming new clubs or organizing events. The district is fairly diverse, both ethnically and socioeconomically, and the high school is getting better at ensuring equity for students of all backgrounds.

Abington is a decent school, but could use some infrastructural and administrative improvement. I've enjoyed my time, and I feel prepared for college. Fix the food tho!
Abington overall is a great school, it has lots of diversity and top of the line education. The Senior high offers students a huge chance to express themselves with different clubs/ activities. We have students that come from different cultural backgrounds. But I have to say sometime Abington senior has its days where high can be too much but, we are given chances to say ' hey I need a break' and you are given ways to balance school life. Sometimes I wish food could be way better but it is not bad. The teachers are super supportive towards the students.
