We are united, and the student gets along with each other. All the teacher care about you and I'm super glad that I was able to attend such an excellent school. The school is not good at preparing you for the SAT, so you need to do your studying on your own!

Bloomsburg Area High School has been changing a lot in recent years with the replacement of administration. Promises have been made, but not kept. The previous administration was a lot more interactive with the students and cared more about our needs and wishes. We are now less informed about things and I do not think it is the best school around. Things could be improved by the administration taking the students' more into consideration with their plans and changes. The staff seems to also have problems with the new administration and I hope for everyone's sake things get better soon. Some things should not always be prioritized over others.
It was very general high school experience. There weren't never ending issues with bullying or violence. We were able to take classes like Anatomy and Physiology or Biology II. The teachers are knowledgeable about their subjects, and we receive a good education. The biggest challenge at this school now involves some of the administration, such as the current principal and superintendent, who have both been publicly criticized for their handling of a recent violent threat to the school made by a student.
