Great school spirit...remains positive and upbeat in the face of lack of funding and limited resources


Posted April 25, 2009

I graduated from abbeville high last may and I miss it very much there were some outstanding teachers most of whom have retired. Abbeville has alot of school pride and I would reccomend this school for anyone in the area who is considering AHS or the private school ACA. AHS is the better choice no doubt about it . Go Jackets go !!!

My daughter attends Abbeville High. When she started she was shy and had no confidence. Now 2 years have passed and teachers along with the academic system, it has helped her exceed highly in academics and self esteem. She has been able to 'show her true colors'. I am highly thankful for Abbeville High School.
