Abingdon Elementary School serves as a vital part of the community by meeting the learning needs of approximately 869 students. School programs start with a state validated pre-kindergarten program and continue to fifth grade. Through the support of the Harford County Public Schools, additional services are offered to eligible students during the school day in enrichment, remedial reading, counseling, and special education. Thanks in part to the efforts of the Abingdon Parent Teacher Association (PTA), additional enrichment classes are offered to students beyond the school day at various times during the school year.
The experienced and talented faculty of Abingdon Elementary works hard each day to provide the children with a quality educational program in the individual classrooms. The School Improvement Team and many school-based committees work to make sure that school-wide programs and initiatives target the specific needs of our student population while focusing our efforts on targeted academic areas, such as reading and math. These efforts by the staff are supported by hundreds of volunteers and an enthusiastic, well-run PTA organization. Parents, teachers and staff work well together and are truly committed to helping all children experience success academically, behaviorally, and socially. It is no wonder that Abingdon Elementary performs well on various state and county assessments. We are also very proud of our warm and welcoming atmosphere where adults and children truly care about each other and have fun while learning. By working together, members of the Abingdon Elementary School community are making our school slogan of “soaring to excellence," a reality each and every day.
