Millcreek Township School District Reviews
At McDowell High School, the staff cares more about the kids who are failing, who have criminal records, and are causing mayhem at school more than they do the kids who actually want to succeed. The school values athletics, which barely ever win titles, and or games in general, more than they do the students. Why is this? They either want recognition from the state so they can obtain funds, or so they can get donors. They decided to build a second sports field rather than to air condition the stifling hot high school, as to where many have passed out and or thrown up in the Erie summer heat. Not only this, but they constantly restrict underclassmen from trying to advance themselves. You are constantly discouraged from taking AP classes until you are a Junior, even when the honors classes just aren't challenging enough. And finally, another exasperating issue is that one of the school board members resides in Florida, and is still making decisions about our schools and children!
It's a fantastic school district! Millcreek is full of challenges that the students will gain. an abundance of clubs, sports, and activites; there is bound to be something for every student. Millcreek offers students with personal opinion and change, which gives each individual a voice to be heard.
Currently, I am a senior at McDowell High School. My journey with Millcreek Township School District started when I joined Belle Valley Elementary School for Kindergarten in 2005. I learned everything necessary in Elementary school as well as had great access to after school help. Middle School I went to J. S. Wilson where my work began to progress. By eighth grade I was an all A student. Now I go to McDowell and I am in all honors classes as well as an AP level class. Millcreek is really great at placing students in correct academic level and their teachers are amazing at helping students keep up and advance. Millcreek also gives you the option of joining dual enrollment as well as technical schools. I myself attend Erie County Technical School thanks to McDowell and its resources. I am in the Health Assistants Program and plan to attend college for physical therapy. I have very much enjoyed my experience.
