Mechanicsburg Area Senior High School Reviews
Mechanicsburg Area Senior High school has amazing and professional teachers who listen and collaborate with the students. They were flexible enough to meet the individual needs of myself and other students with class and learning learning. The music and arts program is excellent. Most high schools do not have a very significant music and arts program, but Mechanicsburg prides itself with a smashing musical performance every year, national award winning marching band and color guard, in addition to graphic and practical arts.
Overall, we have been extremely pleased with MASD. We have had positive experiences in regular, gifted, and special education. There are many teachers who go above and beyond for students. Our only frustration with the district has been with Project DREAMS. We believe in the program and think that job shadowing is invaluable. The teacher in charge, however, assumes the worst of the students. In reality, expectations are not clearly stated and students are penalized for work that they thought had been completed satisfactorily. She does not actually teach the students but only grades and oversees the requirements. She has made accusations that are untrue, called students liars, accused them of purposely avoiding work, and failed them, even when the classroom teacher has vouched for their character. It is frustrating when a program could be the highlight of a students' high school career and instrumental in their future endeavors, but is overshadowed by this kind of instructor.
The teachers really care about the students intake of information, but not every single teacher knows how to work with their students. However, there are a fair share of excellent teachers who really do stand out and it shows by the success rate of that class. Mechanicsburg Area Senior High also has a phenomenal music program and the teachers are very passionate about teaching music to students and pushing them to be the best.
