I’ve been going to alamance burlington schools from kindwrgarden till my senior year and I loved it. If I had to move schools I would really be sad and rather want to stay. Academics were great! My teachers were amazing , I connected with the teachers which made it comfortable for me to learn more and easier instead of having a mean teacher who doesnt get paid enough so they dont care about teaching us. The honors and ap classes are a lot of work but thet really get you ready for college which is great!

What I liked most is that this is my school system. Close to my home, and serves the needs of my family, friends and community. ABSS really cares about its community and students. They are constantly striving to improve the programs and resources that they do have and reach out to form partnerships with other schools, colleges and communities.

However, because of lack of funding or resources or administrative backing, ABSS is not always in a position to compete with or offer our students the same opportunities as other school districts. We are smaller in comparison to others and are sometimes overlooked for funding and other opportunities/programs that some of the other districts easily receive. I would like to see this change.
My experience with Alamance-Burlington School system has been great overall. I attend Western Alamance High School and I love it. The staff at Western are wonderful, and wants to see each and every one of their students succeed. Ever since I moved to Western my grades have improved a lot. The only thing about Western is that it is not a diverse school at all, and when I felt very uncomfortable at first. I feel like every school in Alamance-Burlington School System should be able to have the same opportunities and the same amount of diversity, but overall my experience over the years have been great.
