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!

I grew up in Millcreek Township, and have attended school in the township since pre-K. I attended Asbury Elementary through grade 5, then WestLake Middle School for 6-8. Millcreek Intermediate was 9-10, and Senior High was at the McDowell HS 11-12. Millcreek Schools are first class schools, allowing me to be ahead academically and also challenge me. There are so many courses to choose from in High School, which has enabled me to take courses to further my education in certain areas. The Sports are great, and it is a super close community.
This is my first school district and I have been enrolled in elementary, middle and high school in this district. I have had a great community experience as well as academic experiences. The Millcreek community District is very close knit and is always looking out for one another. They provide many opportunities to be involved and make it better for one another. I go to Mcdowell highschool and I think our school represents the friendly and welcoming aspects of the Millcreek community very well.
