Absegami High School Reviews

I love Absegami. The students are really nice and the teachers are really great. The administration is annoying, especially since a new superintendent came in. The building's fine but a little outdated, but starting last year they started getting new computers and WiFi and new technology like that. The classes are decent quality. The AP teachers are really good, but there's a limited selection. The club selection is a little limited too. I wasn't really involved with sports, but I think they were pretty good, depending on the sport. The marching band is one of the best in the country.
Absegami has a plethora of extracurricular activities, from our Language Honor Societies to Future Business Leaders of America to your cliche Student Council. I'm currently involved in a lot of these organizations because it is truly beneficial for college and it's honestly fun. I'm in the Freshman Transition Program as an Ambassador, Media Club, Student Council, Class Council and the French Honor Society. The most popular clubs are Key Club, Class Council, and FTP. When you are in Class Council it is extremely fun because you get to verse other upperclassmen and underclassmen in pep rallies and you can fundraise money for prom. Our school understands that with these clubs you can cultivate a fun and safe enviroment.
Absegami High School is undoubtedly innovative and helpful. The guidance and motivaton there is unrivaled. One of my favorite moments that exemplifies are School's morale and support was when our School's football game was overrun with rain, 85% of the people who initially came, stayed and supported them. Another example is a student at our school decided to create a Be Positive Day. Its goal was to initiate positivity, to eradicate bullying, and to educate our fellow classmates about Mental Health. This showed that even our fellow classmates wanted and cared for the well being of our school.
