I did not really like the attitude of most of the students, but it was high school so that was expected. My group of friends was great though. We loved being in the choir, show choir, and musical together. That was definitely my favorite part of high school and what I will miss the most. We also do a lot of fun things during the year like our weekly show done by the journalism club. Or when we did a lip dub. We also have a pep assembly and a huge event the day before we leave for winter break! It celebrates all of the holidays during winter.
Review Beaver Area Senior High School
Beaver Area High school did and does do a great job in preparing students for college. The teachers are all very knowledgeable and are willing to go above and beyond to work with students, even on an individual basis. The counselors quickly sent transcripts to colleges and good at their jobs. Each student learns about technology through the schools IPads. The only complaints I have are, first, their poor gym class. The teachers are fine, but the equipment and activities are not very exciting. Many days are spent playing hockey or walking around the track. The second complaint is with a former principal, who gave me a detention for being late after my truck broke down. Not cool.
The teachers are stellar and are willing to work with any student. The teachers (for the most part) are extremely engaging and appear to love what they do. The athletic division is strong, but not entirely overwhelming. The guidance office is extremely helpful to students in need of help, tutoring, senior projects, colleges, and graduation requirements.
