I am a teacher at Abbett Elementary School. Our school has a strong sense of family and the teachers give 100% each day for their students. Our test scores are improving each year and our Principal has been instrumental in getting families involved as well as the community.

My son has attended Abbett since Pre-K and his education has flourished. It was Principal Sleet's first year there and she has made great strides with the school in her 6 years there. The atmosphere from the staff and the building environment gives such positive vibes when you are at Abbett. It is because of that positiveness that test scores have risen. I am confident that both of my children will succeed after Abbett because of what they've already achieved there.
