Greater Nanticoke Area School District Reviews

They get rid of artistic classes like music and arts, which help kids explore the other side of college that they never even mentioned because they were too busy shoving the idea of being a scientist into kids heads. The teachers were the saving grace. Classes were not weighted while attending, so even though I took AP courses as well as college courses, I still had lower class rankings than someone who took study halls and home economics. Administration cared more about what the students were wearing than what was going on in their lives, or their education. Paid hall monitors helped kids smoke in the bathrooms. The school was truly corrupt. Hope this helps

Greater Nanticoke Area School District is a good school district over all. The staff members are friendly, and it feels like a clean, safe atmosphere. They offer many electives that you can take, as well as some after school activites. The one problem that I would like the school to address is the bathroom situation. There are a lot of things that go on in those bathrooms that they should be infomed about. I think that they should at least get smoke detectors, more cameras to monitor the outside of the bathrooms, or a person to monitors the people in the bathroooms. Overall, the school is a pretty good school district.
I made great friends at Greater Nanticoke Area and developed great relationships with teachers because they truly care for their students beyond the class room, especially the science department!
