Connellsville Area School District Reviews

I liked going to school in this district. The teachers were kind and helpful, it was easy to learn things, and the building is taken care of. The lunches here are ok. Sometimes they have good things like nacho grande, but other days they have general tso's chicken, which is horrible here. Also, I didn't like the fact that they blocked so much on the Chromebooks. Whenever a certain game or website became popular, and almost everyone played it, they block it. And now using securly, almost all of the websites that are even slightly not educational based are blocked. Even some of the websites that the teachers tell us to go to so we can do a certain assignment are blocked. Overall not bad, but there are some issues.

I earned a decent education here. Most of my teachers were very invested and enthusiastic about the topics and classes they were teaching. Most teachers had an interest in assisting and engaging their students. The strict deadlines imposed by some teachers helped prepare me for the rigidness of my first year of college.

If I could change one thing about this school it would be the administration. I had good experiences with the main principal and he seemed like a very caring and resourceful individual but some of the others were lacking. For example, I've had issues with a vice principal who called me in to talk about my academic performance, claiming I was failing, yet I was maintaining a 4.0 GPA.

The facilities were top notch.
Safety is awful. Allow students to entered building without bags going through mental detectors. Good at hiding security issues from students and parents.
Half the teachers care the other half aren’t helpful and lack engagement with the student body.
On the up side lots of clubs, activities, musical and a good mix of cultures. Campus is kept and looks great. If you are a good student there are opportunities to learn. College prep is average. Could be better if you can ever meet with guidance.
