    Overall Experience: The academics at this school are great! Teachers genuinely care for students and want us to succeed. Distrust in senior administration has grown within the past years. Also, every student despises the inconvenience of not being able to drive to school, especially those who are not given a bus and forced to walk. However, my overall experience was great because of the teachers I met and formed a relationship with.

    Overall Experience: The experience was good. But there could be less drama and fights in school. Also you there is too much drug activity for me because I am not interested in that stuff.

    Overall Experience: Recently, my school has been making changes throughout the year attempting to make the school year better for everyone. In my opinion, they are doing the best they can and what they are doing is great. The environment in the school is great when it comes to the students and teachers.

    Overall Experience: This school has a low amount of school spirit. All teachers do is make you memorize things and take a test on them. You end up leaving the school knowing just as much as when you came in.

    Overall Experience: Absegami High School is one of the best institutions of higher learning and education that I have ever attended and I can honestly say that even though some problems do arise from time to time, the administration and caring faculty are the first ones to swiftly respond in order to make the learning environment the most comfortable for the most number of students. Even though I, personally will graduate next year, I can say without a doubt that I will miss each and every one of my past teachers because throughout the year I have learned more than just the material taught in the textbooks, but more importantly I have learned that in life you have to be able to adapt to varying situations because a man's character is most defined in times of controversy and turbulence rather than times of comfort. I will long remember this school even after my graduation.
