I have always lived in Abernathy and I have aways loved going to school here. Abernathy is a very small town just north of Lubbock Texas. Abernathy has a population of just below three thousand, Abernathy is very small which can be great. I like going to a small school because then student athletes can participate in quite a few sports.

It was a great town. The school was a good school, the town was a safe environment, and the community was friendly. Overall a great small town.
I feel very safe here and see our local police multiple times a day. However, like many small towns the unkept land and houses make our town look trashy and unwelcoming sometimes.
