Peters Township School District Reviews

Peters Township School District helped me greatly to prepare for college, and have a fun time while learning. The majority of the teachers are wonderful, and truly love their field of teaching, which makes it easier and more enjoyable to learn the material from them. There is a wide variety of academic opportunities, activities, electives, and sports. The only thing I would want to change is the diversity of the students and teachers. Due to the fact that it is located in PA, in a suburb, the majority of students and teachers are white.
Review Peters Township School District
I have had a very positive experience attending school in Peters Township. The opportunity for AP & honors classes is impressive and the curriculum offered is quite challenging. All four years I played on the varsity soccer program and enjoyed participating in a competitive division.
There are many club opportunities such as theater, media, language clubs and peer jury, sports, etc. My junior year, the PTSD teachers went on strike. That was quite a frustrating experience for everyone and made that year a difficult one.
As an up-scale neighborhood, some notice that the atmosphere is too competitive and, for lack of better words, stuck up. School is what you make it, but when family's come from wealth, it sometimes lessens the incentive for kids to work hard and achieve above and beyond what is expected. Still, there is much family involvement and endless activities for kids to be involved in. I would like to see more controlled supervision among the atmosphere of the school and of events.
