There were a lot of scandals that got swept under the rug and weren’t taken seriously. Academic-wise, the school was pretty decent and we were given a lot of career opportunities. The school also has a whole lot of missing ceiling tiles, leeks, and pest. The football team gets majority of the school fund when our team hasn’t been good since 2016. However during the covid pandemic, the school did pretty well with making sure all questions were answered and that everyone student was provided with anything they needed.
Williamsport Area School District is an incredibly diverse school, filled to the brim with opportunities. More and more I learn to appreciate my school district of time, recognizing our resources for what they are, which is nothing short of incredible. In addition to having such a large group of vastly different people to interact with, we also have a ton of unique classes and teachers available to prepare us for whatever our future holds. This includes Career and Technical Education classes that are driven by specific career aspirations, as well as our incredible music program, which includes band, choir, and most importantly, the orchestra program that I have been involved in since third grade. Our schools are constantly evolving, with my only major complaint being that the administrators often fail to adequately communicate ideas with both students and some teachers, something that frequently comes in regard to school sponsored activities.
