I love my school. It's all about Panther Pride. My favorite experiences all revolve around the sports. Especially football. While I have been at Abbeville High School, our football team has won two state championships, back to back. My sophomore year, I had the privilege to be a cheerleader for the Panthers. Everyone in Abbeville, or everyone who has attended Abbeville, has a huge amount of school spirit! We are the most spirited school around, I can promise you that. The people at the school are wonderful. Although we may not all get along, everyone has each other's back. I would not want to be apart of any other school but Abbeville High!

Honestly, the food at my high school is terrible. The only good day at lunch is Chicken Strip day.. If they are actually real chicken strips. We only have chicken strips like four times during the school year which sucks, because that is every ones favorite. EVERY Friday is pizza day. Pizza day is terrible and very unhealthy. The pizza is loaded with grease and most people get napkins to dab it up with. It is disgusting! Another thing about our food, they never give us enough. I am a very skinny person, probably weighing 100 pounds and the food they serve us never fills me up. So imagine someone who is a lot bigger than me, and can eat more food than I can. They will be starving. Don't get me wrong, the lunch staff is all very nice and friendly, I just wish they could do something about the food.

Our school honestly does not have much to offer. I think because we are not as well funded as other schools, we don't have the resources to have many extracurricular opportunities. We have the FFA which is the only club that I happen to be in. It's easy to join, as long as you have had an AG class. But that's the problem, a lot of people who want to be apart of this organization, are not able to get into a AG class due to not having enough room in it. There are also Student Council and Beta Club. In Student Council, you have to put in an application and you are selected. You have to attend all of the meeting to stay in the club, which is hard for most people because some meetings are at 7:15 in the morning and some people have are hard time getting to those. And Beta Club has always been really fun, but during high school I have not been able to be apart of it because you have to have a 4.0 GPA.
