Abington Senior High School Reviews

Abington has been an overwhelmingly positive experience for me. Nearly all of the teachers that I've had have been amazing and very passionate about the subjects they teach. It's also worth noting that all of the staff has been very accommodating when it comes to my heart issues; they put my health first while not drawing unnecessary attention to the issue. The theater department is a godsend and our productions are always very high quality. While the administration focuses heavily in athletics, the theater and music programs manage quite well on their own. The major downside to the Senior High is the lack of air conditioning. There have been a few times where I have almost passed out because of the heat, but air conditioning is being added with the renovations in 2020.

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!
