My overall experience with Catasauqua High School wasn't the best but will always be very memorable. We may be a small school but our school tries to give us the most opportunities as possible whether that be sports or clubs. What I would like to see change at this school is the academics and college readiness. We need more challenging courses, something that really prepares us. We need to be taught more about the real world and how to prepare for college. Teaching us things in new ways that will grab out attention. I just want school to be an exciting learning environment for all.

Catasauqua High School takes minimal resources and turns them into priceless experiences. Going to Catasauqua allowed me to grow as a student and a person. The small school atmosphere created unlimited possibilities for my peers and I. I played three sports which not many kids get the opportunity to do so. Four years of basketball and baseball taught me more than I could have ever hoped. The coaches turned boys into men. My senior year i joined the soccer team and in doing so I found new friendships and learned a lot about trying new things. Academically I spent my time in the honors classes and the teachers truly did their best to create a challenging environment for me. They pushed students to become better versions of themselves. Teachers were always there to support their students whenever needed, not only academically, but also personally.
I love the athletics and the beauty of the high school! The cafeteria is a great size for the amount of student there are, so it doesn't feel crowded.
