Administration very obviously does not care about students and their success. They only care about proving that they have power. During a meeting I had to discuss scheduling issues (which everyone was having) with one of the administrators, I was told that since I am in top 10, I am a priority. What about the other kids in my grade? Don’t they deserve to receive the same treatment that the top 10 do? This school is very very unorganized and the teachers are incredibly immature. There are hardly any opportunities for students to take 3 of the classes they want, let alone all of them.

Like most people would say, very sports-oriented. Hallways are filled with trophies cases stuffed with awards. Of course, with such a high focus on sports, the academics get pushed to the side a little. That doesn't mean the material isn't there. These past couple years the administration and teachers have been working hard to add new and relevant classes. Diversity is low only because the population is low but the few specs of diversity are always treated like anyone else. For such a small school it does really well, especially compared to the bigger schools around it.
Sports are a big concern for the school, with state-ranked Football, Basketball, Cross Country, and Track teams. Academics are not the highest quality, but students can still do well if they try (high ranking students are accepted to great schools across the country.) Security needs to have a higher priority, with 3 false alarm shooter/bomb threats this past school year. The school is very in-touch with the tight-knit community, most likely because it is a very small town (one stoplight!) Diversity is poor because it is rural PA, though that does not mean that diversity is not welcome. The food is pretty standard for high school food, though I have heard that they have been integrating more home-cooked items over the last few years. Overall, it is a pretty average rural high school with a sometimes above average season for the few sports it offers.
