I LOVE SCASD. Everything is really good. Great academic environment, great teachers, tons of club and activities, and the sports teams are fantastic! Other things are really great, too!

As a student in a large school, sometimes it's hard to find that one teacher that you connect well with and learn the best from. At a big school like state high, that isn't a problem because every teacher cares. I am so glad I got to experience high school at state high and am happy that my personal experience was basically amazing. Aside from them usual drama that comes with high school, I wouldn't change a thing!
I am lucky to have moved to the State College school district in 2007. Since then, our peers in New Jersey have seen the quality of their education dwindle through cutbacks in teachers and curriculum. State College remains very stable, and continues to provide good opportunities for all students. Clubs are countless, and sports are very competitive for those that want o play in college. One suggestion would be create another public school in the district. The size of State College is limiting sports participation. The current approach is to stuff the teams through a 'no-cut' policy. Its not working. Since this policy was implemented morale has dropped significantly in several teams.
