Montoursville Area School District Reviews
I am so thankful to have graduated from Montoursville Area High School. I had such a great time. I connected so well with teachers who, and make so many new friends through the years. We have such a great academic program, and our teachers love to see and help us achieve the grades we work hard for. Also, school spirit is no exception here. Home games and cheering on the warriors in the student section is something I will never forget. The feeling of the team scoring a touchdown, and everyone screaming and jumping up down was such a rush. Overall, the school felt like home, everyone got along! We rarely experienced violence, or bullying. Again, I am happy to be an Alumni of Montoursville Area School District. Once a warrior, always a warrior!
Equal opportunities for everyone. You shouldn't have to be the most popular kid in school, the richest, the best looking, or the kid with the best grades in order to benefit from the high school experience. Too often, the kids that fall into the above categories are selected for things first. Healthy competition is good. Striving to better yourself is good. But what if a kid misses out on an opportunity because that kid doesn't test well? What if that kid had to be raised by a set of low income grandparents because their parents died in a motor vehicle accident? We preach about a society with equal opportunity yet even in our schools, we continue to be subjected to "the favorites". We need to look beyond the socioeconomic backgrounds of kids and who they know. Spend some time with an "average" kid. A kid who wants to make a difference in the world, but is not given that opportunity because all things are not created equal in high school life.
The teacher's and administrators in the district are absolutely superb. The teacher's genuinely care about the students, and make sure that they actually understand what they are teaching. The teacher's also give advice to seniors like myself on what college and major they think I should choose. The building itself is in bad shape, and the taxpayers for the longest time weren't willing to pay higher taxes to pay for a new school. However, a new school is currently under construction and will be done soon! The technology in the school currently is very slow and out of date. However, once again with the new school this will get better. The school does not offer a wide variety of courses that you may find other places, although they do offer AP courses. There is little to no diversity in the school. So if you are looking to be culturally enlightened, MASD is not the place for you.
