Academic Excellence Indicator System report.

Located on the Abernathy Independent School District campus, Abernathy High School is the final stop in the district's K-12 program. The high school is one of three schools located on the campus near downtown Abernathy.

The school was built in 1954, and a science wing was added in 2000.

Technology and personal attention are the hallmarks of the school, which features a teacher to pupil ratio of less than one to 10 and a computer to pupil ratio of one to four. A T1 connection brings the Internet into every classroom, and an interactive audio and video system is available.

Academics are the school's primary focus, but Abernathy High School also has a rich heritage when it comes to extracurricular activities and athletics.

More than half of the students who graduate from the high school attend a college or technical school, and a dual credit program allow students to earn up to nine hours of credit at South Plains College, the region's community college.

There are numerous extracurricular activities available to students, including a student council. There is an award-winning band, and the school won a state mechanic competition that included competitors from large and small Texas high schools.

In 1992, Abernathy High School became one of only three schools in UIL history to win state championships in boys and girls basketball in the same year. In addition to large traditional athletic programs for both sexes, the school also competes in golf and power lifting.
