If you hate your child and want them to slowly die mentally send him/her to Abbott! 100% percent guarantee! With all the homework and quizzes in just a week they'll surely run away! Like how all Abbott parents want. 100% successful.

I love that all the teachers make themselves so available to help and that they set high standards and expectations for the students.

I currently attend Abbott Middle School, and I have to say, it's not as hyped up as the faculty makes it. We have 3 minute passing periods, an overzealous principal, and several teachers who are a bit too... well... you get the point. But quite frankly, it's not that bad of a school, nor that good. I thank the Lord I only have 2 more months left there.

I've been attending this school for 2 years now, and I really don't like it there. The new principle has really made it terrible. Uniforms,3 minutes passing periods,the no excuses university. AWFUL. Im so glad I'll be leaving next year.

We recently hired a new principal. She is really nice and tries to understand where we are coming from. She gave us our first graduation in years of 2008. It made me proud to know that i accomplished something. They had a strict policy but one that i could carry on for the future. I left Abbott Middle School with tears to know that i would no longer attend, but most of all, I left with pride.

I am proud parent of a 8th grader who has attended ABS for 2 years. I would not hesitate to send my 6th grader here next year. The teachers have all been outstanding and offer many before or after school activities to keep your child out of 'trouble' , or when extra help is needed. I cannot say enough good things about the music and drama department. Very caring and connected teachers on all accounts. Thanks!

I went to Abbott in 7th grade, and it was my first year in a public school. It was a very organized school and I felt like I was getting the attention I needed for my failing courses. They helped me exceed in my English to continue my dream of journalism. I am still attending Abbott Middle School and although it is quite challanging, it teaches each student the tools they need so go to college.

I went to Abbott for 1 year and I loved it. The classes were challenging and attending school there benefitted me in more ways than one.

I dont like this school. I went to 7th grade there and most of the teachers there are rude and have bad attitudes. I was in the challenge english class and I barely got any help even when I was failing.

This school is great! My brother is in special Ed. and use to fail all his classes until he attended Abbott. His teachers helped him all the way and encouraged him to get the best out of school. Now he is a great student and is passing all his classes and is on the honor roll for the first time in his life. Unlike what some other person said above Abbott does help people who need help. So I believe Abbott is a great school. I attend it too and they give you lots of chances to get involved with your school. The teachers hope for your success there. I am not in the Special Ed. program but still every teacher there helps.

I went to this school for one year, and in that year I noticed that the teachers did not help the children that needed extra help, the teachers basiclly let them fail and blamed it on the children being lazy. Part of the reason I switched schools was because I was so unhappy with the quality of Abbott Middle School.
