The teachers at Huntingdon Area Senior High School for the most part have been extremely caring and available. Their lessons are relevant and applicable to the real world. Almost all the teachers give so much to their class and always treat all the kids with respect. For me, I think I have had a better experience than many students. I find it extremely easy to build a strong rapport with any teacher or administrator, I always know I am welcomed to seek help of any kind! One thing I like about the teachers is they give options. They are able to realize that not everyone is molded the same way. Teaching and learning should not and is not something that is a like a cookie cutter-not everyone fits. Projects that are given usually have many choices so all types of learners can get something out of the assignment.

I like my high school because of the size, my graduating class has approximately 140 students. I love the student involvement with spirit weeks! Actually this week is Christmas spirit week and I dressed inn cute snowman pajamas for pajama day. The administrators and teachers are enthusiastic about these special events as well and most participate. I would do it all over again because it took me a long time to realize that the people who don't engage themselves are missing out. I was that person for a long time, sitting back and acting like I was so cool judging the other kids who were having lots of good fun. Everything is so much more worth it when we all come together as a school. I would have started coming out of my shell much sooner.
I enjoyed attending Huntingdon Area Senior High school for many reasons. The teachers and faculty were always hospitable and understanding. The police officer on campus made me feel protected and safe especially with all the crazy things in the world today. The high school is well maintained and looks very nice and welcoming to the public. The school spirit is like no other and it's a great school to attend.
