My school is very neat. My principals are very nice and help us everyday I am on this sight because my school sometimes wants money to make donations. I would really like to get and win 5,000 dollars for my school and my best friends. My school teachers taught me a lot from Pre-k to fourth grade I am learning new things. I am nine years old enjoying learning and writing this long story for my school and me I am so happy to be doing this !

zero!!! that what they deserve! a bunch of them only prefer the GT students, I was a former students once! They never help me to get my future started! I had to do everything myself! They was favoritism over student who had good grades!!! And ignoring the students who needed to be help the most! I'm glad now that I see my child accomplishing his or her dream! And the ones they favorite the most in the beginning of my school year, are the ones who's dealing with drugs, jail time and also teenage pregancy.

Abington is unique, it has an extremely caring faculty who has the interest of it's students as a top priority. It offers great music instruction and art to all students and an a+ band. Academic scores are in the top scores also. It is crowded because it is a great place.

I was a former student of ABAve and my time there was successful and positive. The teachers are postive and the GT program is very rewarding and challenging. Socially, this school made me more open to different kinds of friendships. If it were not for the great foundation i received at this school, I would not be the greast scholar I am today.

This school has alot of learning after school programs and has a good reputation as far as education. I have not yet experienced any problems. It really all depends on the child to want to succeed in life.

I don't know where they get off putting all the stars up for etracurricular activites either! The only program this school offers is music and it's only for 5th graders! The after school program is so over crouded they're not even accepting new students so don't even count that one. And just try getting in touch with my daughters teacher is a nightmare I still haven't recieved a call to reshedule our parent teacher confrence!

I am a 7th grader of Abington as of September 2008. Some of the teachers have attitude problems. Also, the students are crazy.
