Blairsville-Saltsburg School District Reviews

I have attended Blairsville since kindergarten. In first grade I was put into their "Gifted Program", which is an embarrassment. The teachers are mostly nice but being a small school, there are favorites and 'legacy' students/families. Athletics are way more important than academics. There is a disgusting amount of bullying that the current administration does nothing about. I will be transferring to cyber this year. Elective choices are nothing special, AP classes available aren't great. Just all around an unhealthy environment for students. There is no diversity whatsoever, there is racism, sexism, homophobia, not only in the students body but within the teaching staff as well. I am truly disgusted by this school, it's a joke. If you have the option, do not send your child here. I could go on an on about everything wrong with this school but it's not even worth my energy anymore, I'll be leaving and never coming back.

Although my school has thrived in the past, it is slowly on a downward decline. Especially in this last school year a lot of unnecessary changes have been made and almost the entire school system in itself has changed. We no longer have a Spanish teacher. We no longer have a librarian or an easily accessible library. The only printer in the entire middle and high school is kept within the inaccessible library. On top of all of this, many teachers are constantly over-stressed and it is a bit depressing. They are stressed because of how few substitute teachers will come to our school, so they have to teacher their own classes as well as fill in for missing teachers.
Blairsville High School offers a decent curriculum, seasonal sports, and a wonderful teaching staff. It should be noted that since Blairsville is paired with Saltsburgh there is some disparity between the two schools. This means that some classes are offered at one school and not the other. This causes problems for students set on a particular career path. Happily, I did not have a problem with the curriculum whatsoever. However, I have seen and heard the dissapointment of my fellow classmates being unable to choose classes that would prepare them for College. Other than this I have little to no complaints.
