Went there for 6 years and I loved every year. I'm sad to hear that the chef left because she would make the best food.

Last week I took my first grade son out of school permanently from Abernathy Elementary. The school appears great from the outside but functions very poorly on the inside. My son was labeled ADHD at the beginning of the year by his teacher because he was messy, had bad handwriting and didn't want to ...  Read more

Please, don't send your kids here. It's too crowded and it will just get worse. Stay in YOUR OWN school district! Make YOUR school an excellent school like the parents here have done. ALL public schools should be desirable!

They are just trying to get through ...  Read more

My son attended Abernethy from kindergarten to fourth grade, and I have to agree with the poor reviewers... As long as you fit the mold and keep your test scores high, you'll do great here!

Progressive and creative.

My daughter has been in Abernethy over the last year. I think it's a very good school. Her curriculum is challenging, the school and classroom are organized, the PTA is heavily involved and supportive, and the princpal provides good, strong, leadership. I am also impressed with the music instruction. ...  Read more
