Littlestown Senior High School Reviews
Littlestown High School is a great school to many "lifers" in the town, and by lifers i mean the people whose families have been here fro generations and you've went to this school district since little up. As a minority I also feel like we are treated much worse than the rest of the school. The school primarily only cares about the kids who they think will go to college and any one else is pushed to the side. They have higher expectations than they should for a school with academics aren't that good. Littlestown has some of the small rates of diversity of most schools around them. Safety is most definitely not priority for the school either. They may have fire drills once a month in the high school but they don't prepare us for if anything else were to happen. The food in the cafeteria will be heated up and sometimes still served up to 3 days after it was put out the first time. Sports at Littlestown aren't a priority of any sort unless it brings money in for the district.
Littlestown High school is a well rounded small town high school. They offer many classes including technical avenues for someone who is not interested in going the college pathway. They are updating all their facilities with currently adding a new sports stadium. Their sports teams a pretty competitive winning their divisions in football, boys basketball, boys tennis, field hockey, baseball and softball. Safety is not really an issue but there is not a lot of ethical diversity like in other local areas. Teachers could use some help and training in dealing with unruly students but they do good with the teaching aspects of the students. Overall it is a good school to attend.
The lessons here are not engaging & teachers expect us to be able to view a brief slideshow on a subject & suddenly be an expert on it. The majority of the teachers do not care that students in all academic/AP courses have homework from every class & some give us at least an hour’s worth of homework. Some days we have 5-6 hours of homework plus extracurricular activities, so we aren’t able to go to bed on time & we spend the whole next day exhausted. I feel that only a few teachers truly care about their students. The variety of classes here is poor. Most electives are based on agriculture & manual labor, such as construction. Students with scientific interests must choose between AP bio, AP chem, AP physics, anatomy, or an agriculture class. We need more science related classes, such as zoology, earth science, animal science, or environmental studies. Also, more useful topics & skills should be taught, instead of making students read mind-numbing Shakespeare & Dickens works.
