Saucon Valley School District Reviews

I came to Saucon as a freshman in high school and initially found it hard to make friends. Many of the students have been attending school in the district since preschool. After a few months, more people became open and eager to meet people outside of their small clique. Academics are great and can be challenging if you want them to be. Teachers from Saucon Valley have inspired, encouraged, and changed my life for the better. Many students do not know how lucky they are to be in such an good district, and many kids are privileged beyond belief. Football games are fun and school lunch is just above average. However, the school board will the district’s downfall if they do not get the incompetent memebers out!

I liked that it felt like a family. The teachers and staff all cared about us, and every single teacher not just prepared us for the next step in our lives, but they also taught us valuable life lessons that I carry to this day. Don't get me wrong, it was not a super easy school district where everything is spoon fed to you. You had to study and you were responsible for how well you did. But you could really tell that they cared about your future, and that is what a school district should do. They should teach you, prepare you, and make you want to learn and Saucon Valley did all of those things.
Saucon Valley School District is a very wonderful school, especially for the arts program. The faculty for the music and theater department are very dedicated to their work and always strive for the young musicians and actors to become better in their work. The marching band and chamber choir especially is highly regarded within the community. The marching band compete in various competitions and took second place in 2017 at a National US Bands competition. In 2018 the chamber choir had the unique opportunity to perform at the one and only Carnegie Hall which was an incredible experience for the members including myself. As a student whom wishes to pursue a career in the music department, Saucon Valley's faculty has definitely helped develop better musicianship.
