Overall, Abington has been good to me. I switched into the Abington school system in 9th grade and it was a relatively smooth transition.
I met some truly amazing teachers in the senior high who have made high school enjoyable. But with the good teachers comes several bad teachers who don't care about their students.
The clubs are very polarizing and it seems like the same 4 kids are in charge of every club. There's a huge selection of activities to join but there's no sense of community. The academics are great but the environment is terrible. I enjoyed some of my time at Abington but I'm ready to move on.

Abington has made my high school experience very memorable, from all of the amazing teachers and the environment of all the students everyday. The amount of clubs, activities, and sports that were offered were incredible. The student involvement throughout the year and with every school event made me proud that I was able to attend such an enthusiastic school, especially when we had out Mini-THON at school. When we would raise thousands of dollars for pediatric cancer and all the families suffering from the loses of cancer.

We have a beautiful stadium on campus that hosts numerous events throughout the year. Whether sports or fundraisers, the Schwartzman Stadium is an iconic structure to the Abington community!
