Montour High School Reviews
My experience at Montour was an overall great experience. The teachers, for the most part, have been really great. A few were not bad people, just not the greatest teachers. My biggest complaint is the lack of understanding of technology. This is not anyone's fault other than the fact that having computers as part of a lesson plan is still something relatively new. However, we did have school Chromebooks my freshman year that were serviceable and did what they needed to. Unfortunately, the following year they were deemed outdated and were upgraded in the eyes of the school. All students believe these were downgrades. At the beginning of my senior year, all teachers got new smart boards but they were not working properly in some classes and no one, not even tech, knew how to fix them. Ultimately, the experience has been great just the lack of understanding of technology prevents me from having an excellent experience
At Montour there is a hug focus of the STEM program. We have an engineering and biomed track for students who plan on taking that path. We offer about 10 AP courses and there are about 20 CHS courses through universities like Pitt. It is a very sports pride heavy school that has huge student sections for football, hockey, and basketball games. Overall, the teachers are very helpful and the staff is very friendly.
Montour High School provided me with the opportunities to set a foundation for my collegiate career. By utilizing these opportunities to the fullest, I was able to build personal and professional skills such as leadership, critical thinking, and community outreach.
