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.

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.
Beaver high school is a very good school to learn in, but going to Beaver I have learned a few things about it. The only thing I'd fix would be the sinks in the restrooms. There are six spots in one late sink but only one works at a time. I'd like to see it fixed!
