Governor Mifflin Senior High School Reviews

As a senior at governor mifflin high school i would describe us a a community that comes together to support our sports and musical programs. Overall i would describe our school as a place where students are able to learn and grow as human beings, however at times our school can focus more on the bad kids who cause trouble instead of allowing the bright and intelligent kids to thrive and help them continue on their successful future paths. Even though this occurs i believe Governor Mifflin is a safe environment allowing for academic and personal growth in its students.

I’ve attended Governor Mifflin School District since kindergarten. In most cases my teachers along the way have been very helpful and very personable. The academics have prepared me to do well on my AP test exams as well as the SAT exam. There are a wide range of extracurricular activities to participate in from clubs to high level competitive sports. I had the opportunities on two occasions to travel abroad to Ireland, England, and France with school organized educational trips. It’s truly hard to suggest an area for improvement since I personally haven’t had any negative experiences. There’s tremendous school spirit and this includes gatherings at sporting events, fundraising, and school walk-outs to display unity for a national cause.
They have great opportunities class wise, for example they have a lot of different options for available classes. Some things that need to change are the bullying that takes place and not dealt with. And also the involvement of guidance councilors on help with getting ready for college.
