Alamance-Burlington Schools Reviews

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.
Review Alamance-Burlington Schools
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.
I am grateful to have proactive peers and teachers by my side in Alamance Burlington Schools. Unfortunately the county commissioners have neglected to fund the schools, and it prevents us from being exposed to real world activities and opportunities. I wish we had better facilities for athletes; locker rooms, a good track, good fields. A high school in the county right next to us just got a new chemistry program and facilities, it looks like a university. I believe those difference would have made our schools more competitive, and given me a better educational experience.
