Solanco high school has a very, very excellent Spanish language program with an excellent teacher for most classes. The students are kind, like most of the teachers. Every teacher has the student's best interest in mind when they're enrolled in their course and refuse to let students fail. An excellent school! Funding for the French language classes suck though. Also not very diverse--mostly white and hispanic.

Solanco School District is a small district in Southern Lancaster County. It is made up of four elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. I am a senior right now in the high school. I have gone through solanco my entire schooling career. I have never had a teacher that I hated. They all want you to learn rather then having you like them as a teacher. The schools are clean and the administrators keep the buildings looking very nice. However, it is a very small school. There are only about 350 kids in each class. If you don’t mind a smaller school where you know of everyone and you want your kids to have a great education you should put them into the Solanco Schools.
Solanco High School was only an average school because while they did strive to give me my best education, they lacked in other areas of needed skill to be an excellent school. Solanco High offers many clubs, programs, sports, and groups to be a member of, but they do not evenly distribute the amount of money and help needed to keep the groups alive.
