Absegami High School Reviews

I went to a small private school during K-8 and I was very nervous about transferring to a large public school. The teachers cared about me and wanted me to thrive. The diversity of students made it easy to make friends and find people who had similar interests. I also became heavily active in outside school activities. Absegami prided themselves in academics but also in sports. I felt like I had another family when I ran cross country and when I was Vice President of my senior class. Absegami had so much to offer me. I entered as a shy 14 year old who had struggled with talking in front of others and putting myself out there, and then I left Absegami as a confident 18 year old who had made a lasting impression on my school and myself. Absegami helped give me the confidence and strength I needed for college. The community, students and teachers truly make Absegami what it is, and it is Amazing.

I'm currently a Sophomore at Gami. So far, I do enjoy it. I believe our school is extremely diverse, which is great. Our academics contain a fair amount of rigor, which prepares you for college. We also have various clubs/activities that are open to all. Most students and teachers have a great amount of school spirit, especially the upperclassmen. The students here are overall very helpful and kind. While the school is great, I do believe we should hire better teachers. Don't get me wrong- most of the teachers here are great and are looking for you to succeed, however many teachers in the Math and Science department are not as helpful. Some of the honors teachers in the Science department don't teach properly and claim that they are trying to make us figure out what's going on by using "problematic thinking skills." This does prepare us for college, however many people are not doing very well in these classes, which is stressful to the students.
I had an amazing high school experience. Though I moved there as a freshmen, I managed to make many friends. The teachers were also extremely welcoming, and I consider them close friends as well. I was the junior and senior class president, which helped me to appreciate the school in terms of advising and leadership. Also, having wrestled and played football, I loved seeing the school spirit grow across my four years. Absegami also had great classes. Most of my classes were AP, offering me great challenges, while giving me many outlets to learn from and express myself. I hope to see the school improve financially in the future. We were in a sharp decline upon my graduation, and that really took a toll on my senior year.
