Nestled in the hills of (Clarks) Summit, stands the school that loves sports so well.
Abington Heights, a public school district in NEPA
, is thought to be "top notch" by many. But after attending the school, I'll tell you it plainly: As of June 2006 (which is when I am writing this), Abington Heights has proved to be nothing but striking teachers and money spent on athletics. In order to keep the student:teacher ratio at 300:1 (or something more reasonable like 30:1, but is still ridiculously high), Abington Heights High School has gotten rid of all its English and most of its Social Studies electives.
The kids at the high school range from Abercrombie
wearing preppy kids to pothead ICP
kids. With such a wide range of students, one of the most popular shared activities among them is making fun of each other behind their backs. (Though I suppose what high school isn't like that?)
Aside from sports, Abington Heights spends money on painting the word "COMETS" on trash cans.
