I absolutely love my school. Great big family! Love all of the teachers and are always able to help. I almost always feel safe, although the large size sometimes is overwhelming. Principals tend to have a great relationship with all of the students. IDs are required and for a great reason. Before entering certain privileged areas such as the library an ID is needed. Promotes ID usage.

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!

I love my high school! I have meet friends at this school to this day that I would consider my sisters. Abington is a big school, so there are so many cool and interesting people to talk to. There are so many different clubs and organizations to join. All of the organizations are very diverse and you will for sure meet new people that share the same interests. I would with no doubt go to Abington again!
