Cumberland Valley School District Reviews
My experience in the Cumberland Valley School District has been phenomenal! I have attended a school in the district my entire life, and firstly, I believe the district's elementary schools do a great job of introducing students to education. I moved on to Good Hope Middle School, where I was introduced to the rigor of higher education at a pace that suited me. This school provided me with excellent learning opportunities and an unforgettable experience. Being in the high school has been one of the greatest experiences of my life, as I have been provided with countless educational opportunities. Cumberland Valley High School has provided me with the best experience I could ask for as I am constantly surrounded by like-minded peers and student-oriented teachers that have more than prepared me for college. I truly believe that this school district is by far the best in our area, and I am so grateful to have not had it any other way.
Cumberland Valley School District is a rather affluent area. Our school's academics are pretty good as some kids get into Princeton, Cornell, Hopkins, etc. Most end up going to PSU, Pitt, Liberty University, your average/ somewhat high tier college. Our student body is mainly Caucasians, Asians, and some Latinos and Middle Eastern kids. Our art programs are amazing; it's a shame I didn't have the chance to take any art classes but I know photography, film, band, orchestra, drawing, pottery, etc kids thrive here. Our sports teams usually make it to districts or states. Our biggest rivals are State College, Hershey, and Central Dauphin. School spirit is super big here as homecoming, mini-THON, and prom are always jammed packed with excited kids. It gets quite competitive and tiring when you get within the top 1% of the school especially when it comes to grades, extracurriculars and etc but kids just want to excel here and go to a decent college/university.
We are a very spirited school district. There is a lot of pep and happiness in the hallways. On Fridays in the fall, it is always cheerful and such an excited hype! As for change, I would like for Cumberland Valley to be more aware of the grief students experience. There is a month that is designated for loss, grief, and how to deal with it properly. I see the assemblies and “activites” in different schools but not ours. I think it is hard to realize the loss that students go through as teens, so if we talk about it and open up areas to talk, it could be very beneficial to us.
