The school is ok. Bias teachers n bad studying. Principal is the problem. She doesn't stand up against wrong. but no control over hitting n bullying in recess. There is lot of hitting in recess but there is no control by the principal. Kids who hit are said it's rough play. And the topic ends there. Excellent school for white kids. 50% kids are minorities and are treated as low income thinking everyone with color falls in that group.. i will be changing school too no wonder is 4-5 rating. As principal says since we have kids English as second language hence the school rating is down. Please show them Henry and Loudon county where non whites are there and school has 9 rating.. PTA is worst doesn't even provide you with parents directory n no room patent that means no way to connect to parents..
No No bullying is just rough play .. if u complain ur kid will be punished. And ur totally ignored from next day onwards.. teachers n students both bully your kids. Parents don't want to talk about it.. want it hidden doors
The principal is a problem she likes to please everyone. She doesn't want to show that there is anything wrong in the school she will not follow up if you complain. If you go above her she will solve the problem but totally ignore you. Than you will be ignored by the PTA and also by the teachers. So bottom line don't complain if there is anything wrong to anyone above her. Just take it the way it's going on.
Yes compassionate towards white. Bullying considered a rough play in recess. If you are any other color you will be treated as secondary citizen. Kids will make fun of ur kids food if u send ethnic food and the TA will never say anything.
Only till the time you are in their good books. The teachers are on phone. And would concentrate if your child is gifted. If not he or she would be sitting in a corner with no help. If you ask they don't bother or help your child. Very bias teacher ..
I attended Abingdon from 1951 to 1955. The teachers were fantastic (on bad days). Tremendous learning experience; some of my classmates had parents in foreign service. Good way to learn of other countries. All subjects were explained thoroughly so that everyone understood the lessons. Glad to see that the standard of excellence has maintained over the years.
A parent Posted Apr 2014 Abingdon is an excellent school. My son who has been attending since pre koro and is now in the 1st grade. He loves attending Abingdon. At a young age he has developed a thirst and love for learning, he looks forward to school every day. The school has some very dedicated teachers and a wonderful principal.

At a young age he has developed a thirst and love for learning, he looks forward to school every day. The school has some very dedicated teachers and a wonderful principal. He continues to score high on the SOLs and the DRE reading test, a testament to the skills of his teachers and the environment of the class room.
