Pocono Mountain School District Reviews

I love my experience with Pocono Mountain West High School. There are so many clubs and activities along with sports that there is no reason why a student can't get involved. Teachers are approachable as well as an awesome guidance staff. Even though I will graduate with a large class, I feel as if I am part of a family that I will miss. Our sports facilities are top notch. I feel we are current and up to date with technology. Class choices offer many electives to choose from. The only conflict though is due to taking honors and AP classes, I sometimes didn't get other electives due to scheduling conflicts. Pocono Mountain West promotes school pride and students who decide to follow the school rules, benefit with special events and incentives. Diversity is present and acceptance regardless of race or nationality. We have a large special education population. They are included in all school events :) So as stated, I am happy I attended my high school <3

Pocono Mountain is where I have developed my academic skills, communication skills, leadership skills, and hard work ethic. The district is filled with clubs and activities that any child can find interest in. Diveristy (Pocono Mountain West) is what makes were this district apart from others, for it is the reason for its rich, developing culture that can not be found anywhere else in the region.
The Swiftwater Elementary center is excellent! With 3 kids in school there and one more starting this year, I have gotten to know the faculty and staff. Everyone is so nice and my children are getting a great education. They even made our first experience with pssa testing fun and my son got very high scores.
