Penn Cambria School District Reviews

My experience with Penn Cambria was very good overall. I would say almost 90% of the teachers are outstanding and met some of the greatest coaches while attending Penn Cambria. Penn Cambria takes academics very seriously which shows comparing us to other school districts around us because we’re almost always on top with standardize testing in our county. Although, there is some things I would change. I feel that Penn Cambria could do a whole lot better with food quality and facilities in our school district. To conclude, I do not regret attending Penn Cambria at all, I met many great friends there and met teachers and coaches that have push me to do my best in everything in life.

As with any high school, Penn Cambria has both vices and virtues. The performance of all athletic, academic, or interest programs are average for the area. Penn Cambria is located in a relatively small community. When it comes to Keystone Testing, Penn Cambria is high on the scale. However, it is rare to earn a high SAT or ACT testing score, for the school does not offer any form of SAT help let alone for a link to print a practice test from the website. The school is indicative of the area. Cresson is mainly Caucasian, and that shows in the school. The teachers are perhaps one of the saving graces of Penn Cambria. Though not every teacher is fantastic, almost all of them have been exceptional in educating.
Personally, I have been very miserable at penn Cambria. I have been creatively and academically suffocated and have been ready to move to college since the 6th grade. All of our funding goes to things it shouldn’t go too ie a new football coach who was started out at a base pay higher than all the teachers who had been working there for years.
