Absegami is a great school to get involved in. There many sports and clubs to get involved. There's a lot of school spirit which I love. Make the most of it. There, great classes, you can take the cater to what you want to major in. There's even a garden where you can help plant and harvest fruits and vegetables!
Review Absegami High School
It is an ethnically diverse school. It would have been better without the occasional fight. There was once a bomb threat from a student, who ended up getting arrested. Near the end of the year of 2016, some kids took a picture of a gun sticking out of their backpack and there was a lockdown for almost 2 hours. People almost had panic attacks and teachers had no idea when it would be over. The principal just stated everything was fine. That day we also had a security guard lead people to the bathroom. Despite all of the problems, Absegami still has great staff and students, excluding a few bad eggs in the mix.
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 The building's fine but a little outdated, but starting last year they started getting new computers and WiFi and new technology like that.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.
