Open Quote The worst school ever. Principal doesn't care about kids. There is bullying issue, kissing issue at school. Principal is a joke and only is interested in her teachers. No room parents. Will discourage you from lunch and recess. PTA president is like a high schooler who keeps it only to her friends. Give other parents all useless work.. very bad school un monitored recess.. I would never put my kids Close Quote

Open Quote Abingdon has a fantastic partnership with the Kennedy Center. There is a wonderful focus on the arts--music, drama, art. Every fourth grader learns to play the violin. Students have architecture classes. The teachers are caring and supportive. Joanne Uyeda, the principal is excellent. My children love going to school at Abingdon! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
