My overall experience at Scranton High School is wonderful. I enjoy walking down the hallways and seeing the wide diverse of cultures. I also enjoy seeing the school spirit we exercise daily. Even though we aren't top in the state in our sport teams, we surely hold good spirit! Even through tight budgets we still come together and look to the good! Go Knights!

I personally believe that the Scranton School District has a lot to offer. Yet, they have a lot in which they can develop. Sadly, there have been economic issues and there aren't as many resources. Yet, as a student from the Scranton School District I have been able to take advantage of the given opportunities. I believe that the school curriculum can be developed and more classes can be added. Which can help students with specif credits and can help teachers obtain jobs.
While in the mist of my high school experience, I may not have noticed it, but it was a good. I had a achieved had I wanted to achieve. I went out of my comfort zone to complete my goals. There were many who support and helped me during those times. This included teachers, coaches, and staff that helped me with my hardships. I loved and won't regret what I had completed during those years.
