Beaver Area High School has wonderful science and math courses. There are also quite a few criminal justice courses such as Mock atrial, Law and Order, and others. The faculty and teachers are wonderful and amazing people, who are always there for students. There are an abundance of options for sports. We have a swim team, tennis team, track and cross country, softball, baseball, and more. There are also plenty of music and art options. Overall, Beaver is a wonderful school, and the time I have been at Beaver has been great.

I actually moved to the Beaver area when I was a freshman in High School. The staff/student were very helpful and caring to my arrival. I enjoyed my classes and the teachers teaching them. Some students were pretty rough at first because of all the cliques. However, I soon was able to find my crowd and make friends!
The teachers are all very competent and friendly, willing to go the extra mile to ensure their students are receiving the best education. The environment is safe and encourages learning, with all of us feeling respected and important in our roles as students.
