Minersville Area School District Reviews

Currently enrolled at Millersville University majoring with a BFA. The school is okay it has a small campus without much to do there and older buildings that might be in need of an update, but the faculty I have experienced at MU are what made this school worth every penny. The entire art department is very dedicated and if you want to get the most out of it they will help you the whole way. Personally I'm glad I didn't transfer somewhere else and miss out on working for years with these individuals.

Could be better if they had stronger academics (such as more variety of AP and Honors classes). The students have potential but require more resources in order to succeed within and beyond the walls of high school. Although the school has a lot of school spirit, the administration itself should focus more on advancing academics as opposed to brandishing the school in "Battlin' Miner" insignia.
I understand that Minersville is a small town with a close community; however, such an establishment is not used to promote the school whatsoever. Due to much nepotism, the average student has no chance of excelling and gaining scholarships/recognition unless he/she plays a sport. That being said because the academics at the school are quite poor, many officials of the school and much of the community focuses on the sports aspect of the school (as a means to promote the name of the school). This is rather unfortunate considering the fact that there are many pupils who hold the potential to excel to greatness. Perhaps if the school offered a more rigorous curriculum (such as Honors classes and more AP classes) there would be a possibility of the institution receiving a higher rating from me.
