Mars Area School District Reviews
I can genuinely say I've enjoyed my overall experience at Mars. The range of classes combined with teachers who, mostly, genuinely care about their job and the well being of their students has provided a well rounded and strong educational background before entering the real world. Teachers make subjects come alive and are realistic with students. They use personal experiences and devices to help students truly understand the concepts, not just memorize examples. Although there is not an insane amount of school spirit, Friday Night Football games get everyone excited and bring us together. Everyone says that they hate high school and cannot wait to move on to college. I, myself, have said it. However, I know when I graduate in a year, I will miss Mars High and all of the students and faculty members I have come to know.
It was a good school! They prepared me for my future plans and made sure the gave me what they could to be prepared. Its a very cooperative environment between the students and teachers. I enjoyed my time as a Mars student.
I have so far enjoyed my experience at Mars Area Highschool. I like it because it is a smaller district, so you get to know many of the students. The teachers I've had care about the kids and push the students to succeed. On the other side of it being a small school, there are not as many class choices and opportunities that a larger district might offer.
