Conrad Weiser Area School District Reviews
I went to Conrad Weiser from Kindergarten to 11th Grade. From the time I was there I was very impressed with their science program that they offered to students in both Junior and Senior High. I felt that I was able to push boundaries and make new discoveries with their program. The teachers were also very helpful and willing to be flexible about the use of the labs and supplies for experiments. Most of my teachers from Elementary on were very kind and helped guide me to where I am today. While I am aware that every teacher is not perfect, I felt that there should have been some closer monitoring on the behavior of teachers towards some of their students at times. I also felt as though the staff could have done more to stop the large bullying situation in both the Junior and Senior High. Overall, I had a great 12 years there and would thank them for pushing me to where I am today.
In general, I think Weiser was a pretty good school. There are some obvious problems, like gross amount of funding and attention being funneled into the science department and the blatant disregard for the arts and humanities. The move towards the hybrid system also is arguably one of the worst decisions, mostly because it's not a practical format for all classrooms, and good teachers are already doing a fine job of engaging their students. Despite this, I think that Weiser's problems from an administrative standpoint are made up for by having some of the best teachers. With the exception of some of the staff that show irritating amounts of favoritism, the teachers all genuinely care about their students and want them to succeed. I also think it's awesome that the student council is able to meet with the school board and discuss concerns from the student—and better yet, that things have actually changed because of it.
This school really focuses on mental health. I feel as if this is something not that many schools do. There are many special education teachers that not only help out disabled children, they also help students suffering from extreme stress, anxiety, and depression. I think this is unique and amazing to have at a school. Most students get bad grades because of their bad mental health and I feel as if, if more schools had places where students could relax and de-stress, test scores would go up and everyone would enjoy coming to school more.
