Overall Abingdon High School has been a positive experience. I had attended AHS all of my High School years. The only issue I have is that its all about who's who. If you are not from the right family, have the right clothes, car and etc. you are looked down on. I am glad to be leaving there and if I had it to do over entering my freshman year I would have attended another high school in the county. The reason I didn't was because I was involved in the football program at AHS since peewee league and I wanted to stay with the people I had made friends with.

The atmosphere at Washington County Public School are very vibrant. The people are diverse in nature of interest and they are rather welcoming.
Thank you!
I have went to Washington County Schools since I was in first grade and have loved it! Elementary and high school have been the times of my life! While middle school was a rough time for me, I've loved every minute of high school.
