Absegami High School is a great high school. I transferred to Absegami in my sophomore year and fell in love with it. I honestly cannot imagine going through high school in any other school. The Performing Arts programs are superb and they create a sense of family. I was involved in all of the performing arts programs. They gave me a confidence boost and turned me into who I am today. The school puts a lot of funding into class councils and sports, not the arts or music. The administration needs some work and so does the guidance department. The teachers always went above and beyond what I expected. Overall, Absegami is an excellent school to attend!

Recently, my school has become a very positive place in terms of artwork, encouraging messages, and faculty positivity. There are many pep rallies, which bring the student body together and promote an essence of comradery, and a ton of opportunities for students to be more active and involved in school. One thing I'd like to change however, would be the school day length. I find myself going to bed very late because of my school work, and waking up without getting enough sleep more often then I'd like to. If my school could take out 20 minutes from the School day and push back the starting time from 7:45 AM to 8:05 AM, I would feel refreshed and even more excited than I already am to show up for my classes.
The experience at Absegami High School was a pleasant one. The overall student body is diverse and opened to different points of view. The academics at this school are rigorous to prepare students for University. The clubs are endless which are available to anyone interested in joining one. The overall student body is welcoming and kind to even the Freshman who are just entering the school. Teachers at this institution are helpful depending on the course taught, as others are not so helpful in certain subject matters. The honors classes are phenomenal in challenging students to be readily equipped with the proper learning tools for University. I would rate this school are a good educational institution for all students.
