This is a pretty small school. The teachers here are really special; they care about their students and want to see them go places in the future. I had a great experience going here! They are limited in their resources, however they do the best with what they have.

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.
