I have grown up here all my life and have been in the district since Kindergarten. No complaints! Love the teachers, administration and students. The classes have prepared me to further my education. The opportunities offered in school and outside the school have introduced me to new things and experiences. I could definitely see myself coming back to the district just so my future children can experience what I did.

Systems were not as great, like course registration and communication but other than that, A+
The affluence of this district allows for many technological opportunities and exposure to the tools of the future. Many of its educators are dedicated to the wellbeing of their students, and many students work with assiduity toward bettering their education. However, State College students and teachers contend with administrators who are either out of touch with or ambivalent toward their needs. This is reflected in policies that do not ally with promoting wellness and optimal learning.
