Abraham Clark High School Reviews

The entire school district of Roselle needs help. Abraham Clark High School is lacking in so many areas alone. However inadequate the environment may be, the students have ambition; especially if they are involved in sports, the JROTC program and/or other school programs. We all aspire towards bigger and better things. Most of the teachers and staff members encourage us and provide their wisdom. Although our voices are heard, there isn't much the teachers can do. The problem, as aforementioned, is in the administration and lack of involvement from parents. Additionally, the school is worn and unsanitary. I could go on, but I won't.

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.
I really was able to see myself grow in this school. I’ll sleeve RAM ready! But, the school does need a few improvements based on upgrading and updating certain things.
