Definitely has a hometown feel, close community, school and educational systems are getting better, job opportunities are limited and there are many neighborhood parks along with a family oriented Island Grove for everyone to enjoy. Unfortunately, the drug epidemic is just as bad as everywhere else. However the town has taken steps to get the community involved and make them aware.
Abington is a really small, tight-knit community where everyone knows what's going on around town. Our schools are improving (building a new middle/high school in the coming year) and so are our town programs and community. Overall, Abington is great place to live
When I moved here I was twelve and hated it but growing up here I made great friends and so did my parents! My friends in surrounding towns went down the wrong path when they got addicted to herion and I am now going to be attending nursing school! I couldn't imagine my life not moving here! 9/10 only because nothing can be perfect.
