Abbott Technical High School is an outstanding school and has amazing academic and shop staff that work very closely with the students. They have just opened a Health Technology program, which I am currently apart of, and the program puts you on the right track to your health care career. The program will certify you to become a CNA ( Certified Nurses Assistant ) during your junior year, and also certifies you in CPR. Overall, the new program is an amazing learning experience, and the teacher will work to make sure you fully understand and retain the information. Henry Abbott Technical High is truly the " #1 School on the Planet".
There is nothing great about this school. The academics are low especially in Math. Look at the school profile to see how poorly students perform in the state wide standards test called CAPT. The trades offered at this school are not 21st century trades. There is no health care trade at all...one of the largest growing areas in employment. If you want your child to become a brick layer then send him or her to this school. If you want your child to be prepared for a successful college experience there are truly great schools in the area. Henry Abbott Tech is not one of them.
HATS seems to work very will with my child. He is a child that works well with his hands. The staff if helpful and helps with issues that come up. They do not tolerate bullying, and that is nice to know.
