Central Dauphin School District Reviews

I enjoyed attending Central Dauphin School District. Their academic requirements prepare students thoroughly for a college path, but I believe they lack in preparing students that are not going to college. They are designed to guide students towards a higher education, which may or may not be fitting for certain individuals.
The Central Dauphin School District is a diverse community who encourages one another to achieve greatness. The teachers are welcoming and the students are kind. I was able to learn new concepts and be creative. I would like to see more pep rallies and student-led activities.
I liked CDSD for the most part. They didn't take over students to much, while still keeping us in check.
I really enjoyed the positive atmosphere the teachers gave to the students. I always had help and never had any moments where I felt like I wasn't in the right place!
It's a good school however there is little to make it different from the other schools it feels very generic and some staff aren't up to par and have shown favoritism causing not the best of situations and reactions from students.
Teachers and counselors are very nice and will help you with class Selection and college-related topics.
Central Dauphin is a good school. We have many teachers who actually seem like they love what they do. In my experiences, the vast majority of the students are nice. There is a group for everyone. Our sports are competitive and fun to watch, which gives students school pride. While we definitely have our problems, like every other school, I believe the way we adapt and come together make us a good school.
This school is very diverse in its faculty and students. The education quality is sufficient and mediocre.
Central Dauphin is a really nice high school. The teachers are really supportive and really helpful. I really enjoy my time going to there!
I moved into the district and I had a hard time fitting in. The school didn't do much to help new students adjust.
it is an excellent school district. If I was a parent I would want kids to go to this school for the great education system they have enrolled in either school. diversity is great. The teachers are very accepting and supportive of their students. As a former student, I loved the principal and the whole staff in the cafeteria who always was there for me like family. Central Dauphin Senior High School is a highly rated, public school located in Harrisburg, PA. It has 1,774 students in grades 9-12 with a student-teacher ratio of 15 to 1. According to state test scores, 72% of students are at least proficient in math and 80% in reading. I would want everyone to seek help if they are mentally unfit or getting bullied like how I did. Students at this school are making far less academic progress given where they were last year, compared to similar students in the state. The student is offered many opportunities for scholarships and sports scholarships. All students have different abilities.
I have been attending Central Dauphin School District for my entire school career. It has been mostly good but the bussing can sometimes be a little rough.
My 4 years were great, I got to experience a lot of new things and what I liked was our schools were diverted which is good. I would not want to change anything because everything was great.
Overall, with the academic I feel like you get what you put into it. You can either take a bunch of AP and get into it or fly by doing nothing. Socially there's a lot of scandals.
Central Dauphin School District is a decently organized district that provides students with opportunities to grow and learn. The district has numerous elementary school, two middle school and two high schools. The high schools especially have a wide range of classes and activities to choose from allowing students to find their preferred fit.
Central Dauphin has many upsides. Such as the Administration, Musicals/Arts and the sports programs. But in terms of Academics and Diversity it's actually average. Other than what listed above the school is actually very mediocre.
School was nice, but lots of students. School is still in great shape. Teachers have a lot of students to teach.
