Not a big fan. The school itself, in my opinion, is poorly designed. The colors (brown and orange) are also very unappealing, and painted all over. Insufficient restrooms. The hallways are extremely crowded, and students just tend to stand there, instead of going to class or let other people through. THAT is not right. Additionally ( And I don't want to be "that guy"), the place smells weird.

I graduated from this school in 2007. I easily breezed by on sub par work. I managed to be in the top 10% of my class with minimal effort. Many teachers assigned "busy work" to avoid actualy having to teach, although many of the specifc teachers I am referring to have since retired. Even still, the support these teachers received from administration is a clear sign administration is more concerned about national rankings on tests than on actually educating. The school is not entirely without merit however. The music and speech programs are great. Some teachers actually inspire students to learn. These wonderful teachers go unrecognized due to the overwhelming amount of mediocrity overhwelming the school. Students attending Universities who come out of this school may struggle.

Within the first two months of teaching in this school, I have already met professionally with my fellow colleagues more than I did ALL YEAR in the last school I worked in. This school really respects the teaching profession.

Because the students, staff, faculty, administrative team and parents of ABS grt it, it's all about kids achieving excellence, meeting their goals and beliving in their dreams.

Programs are good, availably of activities is good. However the level of parent involvement is not as good as it should be.
