Central Dauphin School District Reviews
My experience with the Central Dauphin School District was beyond exceptional. Starting from elementary school the teachers were beyond determined in helping students learn. Teachers made sure to do their best to keep students from falling behind in their learning. As I moved up to the middle school the level of teaching spiraled down. The first two years of middle school were anything but smooth as peers seemed to be worried about things other than learning, such as fighting and bullying, although I never had any problems with other students. In addition I feel the teachers were of less quality, but I still managed to accumulate good grades. Here in high school we have a huge number of clubs, activities, and sports teams. championships this year already. Overall, I think the Central Dauphin School District has done a great job preparing me for the real world outside of school.
Central Dauphin offers a wide variety in academics, clubs, and sports! The teachers are involved and are always available to help students properly understand the material and the learning environment is wonderful.
I attended Central Dauphin School District for approximately 3 years. My experience was great. The teachers and educators were extremely interested in not only your success as a student, as your success as an individual after graduation. During my time in the district I played JV, and Varsity football to which the coaches were phenomenal. The central message that was instilled into the team players was academics prevailed over the game. We were taught to respect each player as we respected ourselves, and demonstrate integrity into our communities. What I have learned and gained from the influential people serving in this district is respect, integrity, and commitment that I shall continue to display with pride.
