Beaver Area School District Reviews

The school has a phenomenal teacher staff. The AP courses are all very successful (particularly the Science APs). While the school has a fantastic record in their core classes, I wish their was more unique classes to choose from, but perhaps I was just too busy of a student to enroll in any even if I wanted to. However! Beaver has recently added a tech room and are planning on installing a 3D Printing lab with classes for those as well. Beaver's sports teams boast a higher than average success for the most part in their respective seasons. Personally, the cross country team was the best experience. Something I would like to see changed about the school is that facility be updated in a few places, since it is an older building. Overall, great school.

Beaver Area High School is a place that I walk through daily with pride. It is a district in a County that is rich in tradition and excellence. I have been on sports teams and was in "charge" of our student section of all sporting events and can say that this place is filled to the brim with Bobcat PRIDE!!! I look forward to attending West Virginia University in the fall and looked for those same traditions, excellence and pride in my college choice that I experienced at Beaver. GO BOBCATS!!!!!!!
The school is pretty well run, but my only frustration is with the guidance counselors. They only ever seem to be working with trouble students and never get to interact with anyone else. This can make it very difficult when it comes to scheduling and other personal meetings. The best guidance counselor I ever had was our now retired Command Sergeant Major Timothy Gadra. He was absolutely amazing with all the cadets and cared for their well-being.
