North Schuylkill School District Reviews

The school has given me a decent experience in terms of relationships made with my peers and the average student in the district is very outgoing and welcoming. However, North Schuylkill is below average academically. Teachers are very nice and being a smaller school with class sizes typically being around 10-25 depending on the course you are taking, you develop close relationships with them, but some teachers have too laid-back methods of instruction, to a point where they lose control of their classrooms. Unfortunately, teachers who are like this overshadow the fantastic teachers in the school. In my five years in the junior/senior high school building, I have had many helpful teachers and two departments in specific, English and Industrial Arts, have exceeded all of my expectations.

It’s an okay school, to say the least, but it could be so much better if we had the funds to do so. The school mostly focuses on sports rather than academics, a regular occurance in Schuylkill County schools. The school wastes money on televisions in the hallways instead of using it to buy supplies for the art program, and the school is in the process of getting a turf field for the football field. NS is the school equivalent of the Emperor’s New Clothes: Everyone knows they’re poor, but no one says anything about it. Well, I guess it’s good we’re not Shenandoah’s school district, right?
This school district is in a declining area in NEPA. Its politics first as usual. It actually used to be worse in the 80s and 90s with that type of deal. Teachers have a lot of challenges here being in a drug filled declining type area. All the old school teachers have retired and its a lot of millennials teaching so that could be good and bad. But the school lunches always rocked!
