Mechanicsburg Area School District Reviews

Mechanicsburg Area Senior High School is an above average school. There are a lot of options for those who want to take advanced, college level courses, such as AP classes or dual enrollment. There are also support systems for those who aren't as academically inclined. Sports seem to be really important here, as well. There are activities for everyone's interests, including theatre, music, art, sports, or special interest clubs like Anime Club. There's always someone to turn to if you need help whether that is a teacher or a guidance counselor. Sometimes the logistics and planning of the school seems a little bit off.

Mechanicsburg prepares you for your future. Their curriculum is challenging, their teachers are encouraging and the atmosphere is inviting. The years spent at Mech were the best yet!
My experience with MASH was, for the most part, positive. The academics were, in my opinion, pretty good. I felt as if I got a good education that academically prepared me for college. However, I believe they should implement a program focusing almost entirely on college prep, as most graduates from MASH go to either a technical school or some form of higher level education.
