Mars Area Senior High School Reviews
Mars Senior High School is a public educational institution that provides a quality education. Many of the teachers are welcoming, dedicated and engaging, but the curriculum could be improved with more hands-on learning opportunities and a better connection to local industry. The student body is primarily comprised of Caucasian students (94 percent), which affects the overall diversity of the student body.
It is a pretty good school. The teachers are all very hardworking and helpful. The diversity, on the other hand, needs to change. A majority of the students are not cultured much and need to be exposed to the world around them to become better, qualified, and empathic adults. The sports is quite good, although is prioritized over the hardworking art and music department, which definitely needs to change. So many students have found their homes in art, and without proper funding it is detrimental to their education.
No matter how crazy my dreams and aspirations were, Mars Area Senior High School always has supported me. They are open to new ideas and innovation. In all 12 years I have spent here, the school district has grown and improved with me. They are always introducing the newest technology to ensure we all receive the best education.
