Abingdon Elementary School Reviews
There are to many kids in each class at Abingdon Elementary School for one teacher be able to teach each one of them. Some of the staff would rather sit around and talk than do their job, some could care less about what's going on at the school. There were a few nice ones I will give them that. It's very unorganized at the school. It looks like they have cut back to much on the staff and teachers. It's almost like they are just there to baby sit because the children sure aren't learning much. I'm sure if your child goes there and you ask them what they did during the day you will see for yourself.
My daughter was so excited to start kindergarten. We went to open house and they made us feel safe leaving our daughter in their care. We decided to take her to school once we found out 60 plus kids were on her bus with 3 to a seat. When I went to go pick her up I went to the office and she wasn't there, so I was told her teacher would be bringing her to the office. So I waited and once I saw the teacher she asked if I got my child. I replied no where is she. Long story short they lost my child. She was in the parking lot with no adult crying & looking for me. So I called the school board which was no help. They tried to act like it wasn't a big deal. We asked to transfer to a different school but they said no. So now she's in private school. I will never take my child back to them.
