Pine Grove Area School District Reviews

PGA is very small, I graduated with a class of 100. Not very diverse and everybody knows everybody. It is a fun school. Since it is so tiny, you can build a stronger relationship with your teachers and with your classes. There are a few AP courses and depending on which you take, will shape how prepared you are for college. The history department was not great but English prepared me for college work loads and the science department was also very challenging. In regards to safety, one year there was a string of bombers threats in our bathrooms which resulted in student being searched before entering school.

My experience at this district was wonderful. The teachers were amazing, and made all students feel welcome and helped them excel. They have amazing extra curricular activities from sports, to music, to tech ed. I would definitely recommend anyone take their children to this school!
My experience with Pine Grove Area School District has been great. The school is filled with great faculty members that care about the well being of the students. The class sizes are small due to the small, rural community of Pine Grove which allow the students to have a unique and personalized learning experience. The school district makes room for individuals while maintaining control of the student body. Compared to other districts, Pine Grove Area School District is a great school full of opportunity and resources for the students. I would not change anything about the school district.
