Abraham Clark High School Reviews

I have been in this school for three years and from what I've experienced, most of the classes and activities I have been involved in have been a little over my expectations. If you take honors/AP you're in good shape, the students in those classes are well mannered and well behaved. The school lunch is terrible, there isn't enough choice other if you don't like what they are serving then you are getting salad or a sandwich everyday. The after school activities take about thirty minutes to start, there is not enough involvement in them. This school mostly focuses on athletics, even if you're just a visitor, you'll be astonished by the quantity of trophies when you walk in.

As graduation slowly approaches, it prompts me to reflect over my years at Abraham Clark High School. When I first entered the spirited halls of Abraham Clark, I was greeted with encouragement and school pride fostered by the energized principal, amiable staff, and lively upperclassmen. Thenceforth, I was met with intellectually stimulating coursework and dedicated teachers. My interactions with my peers were mostly filled with welcoming and affable exchanges. As thrilling as my experience was, I would still like to see my school flourish and make improvements. I can say that Abraham Clark did not lack in school culture nor failed to impress in athletics, but I did wish that there was an emphasis placed on students who had interests in areas such as astronomy, beauty, debate, math, poetry, etc. Lastly, I can say that my experience at Abraham Clark was certainly an amazing adventure and I am ready to use the tools that I have learned in order to commence the next chapter of my life.
I started at Abraham Clark High School in 2014. I was nervous and anxious at the same time, since i was coming in as a freshman. The teachers are very helpful and they push you to do your best. They are always willing to help you before and after school. The administration is awesome as well.
