Montour High School Reviews

Montour High School always has its hands on the latest technology before any other district on the area. Whether it be every students' personalized Chromebooks or the two 3D printers stationed around the campus, there is always a new piece of machinery ready to better our education. However, it's not just the physical atmosphere that is ahead of its time. Montour's administrative board had very open minds when their very own Gay Straight Alliance club requested updated bathroom policies and training for their staff in regards to transgender rights. The faculty at this school go above and beyond to obtain what their students need to feel comfortable and well-equipped to learn something new everyday.

Good teachers. Every teacher I've had has been nice, informative. Science and math teachers are well educated and very nice people. Lots of extra circular activities and clubs are offered. Can be inclusive, however, a majority of students are very conservative and known to rip LGBT inclusive posters off the wall.
There's only like ten cops and they are all probably a little to old to actually do anything in the case of an emergency. They're also unarmed so they really can't do anything. However, the school is so big and has so many exits that if there was ever a shooting your chances of survival would be pretty high. Drug dogs come in about once every nine weeks (four times a year). They're a little too harsh on drugs honestly. One girl got a ten day suspension for having midol in her bag. But at the same time, a kid did OD in the bathroom my freshman year. He lived!
