Brockway Area Junior/Senior High School Reviews

The majority of the teachers I have dealt with at Brockway Area High School have been friendly, consistent in their grading, and very capable of teaching in an engaging fashion. There are plenty of tutoring opportunities available after school, and most teachers are more than willing to incorporate time into their daily schedules as well whenever needed. I would say the largest shortcoming is in some of the teachers' abilities to control a classroom. I understand that some students simply do not want to be taught, but there is a clear difference between teachers who are respected and those who are not. In addition, there are teachers who are rather outdated in their teaching methods, in terms of incorporating technology and innovation.

The extracurricular activities at Brockway Area High School are decent; there are plenty of different clubs and organizations, and they are easy to join. The teachers are very involved as well. However, there tend to be only a few students who are greatly active in the club, and there is little group effort. As a smaller school, we tend to struggle with stretching ourselves too thin. Everyone tries to participate in everything, and in the end they end up accomplishing less. In addition, there is little school funding for extracurricular activities aside from sports. The majority of the money comes from the students and their fundraising, which in a small town becomes difficult when every club is trying to sell food and clothing all at once.
There are a lot of sports to get involved but also other clubs and activities. The clubs have the opportunity to raise money at the sporting events and the community is very involved in the activities. Besides the sporting events, there are musical and other theatrical productions that students can get involved with.
