Unlike most schools, Mahanoy Area is a second home to me and many of my peers. Not many people could say this but I know almost everybody's name in our high school. My school has provided me with numerous opportunities to interact with everyone. I am happy to say that every teacher was more of a second parent to me. They helped me more than just with homework. I know when I walk out the front doors in June, my teachers and the district as a whole will have fully prepared me for what is to come.

I enjoy my time at Mahanoy Area. The teachers are always willing to help. There are also many sports, clubs, and activities. The academics are good and help me out a lot.
The cafeteria always had a variety of options. There was a regular line that served the meal that was on the menu for that day, and there was a deli line that had a variety of soups salads and sandwiches to choose from. There was also fruit, yogurt, and vegetables available as snacks/desserts. There was a variety of drink choices as well, spanning from water, to iced tea, to powerade, to milk or chocolate milk. The cafeteria staff also made sure to accommodate for every special dietary needs of teachers and/or students. The cafeteria also had a variety of snacks, including chips, popcorn, rice crispie treats, apples, string cheese, or nutrigrain bars.
