Sometimes the school seemed to focus more on how many APs we offered and less about how well kids were doing in these courses. The science department was incredible, always willing to help you understand more. The history department was another force to be reckoned with. For the most part, individual teachers cared a great deal about how their students were doing in classes. The administration, on the other hand, cared more about the general presentation of our school and what our school rank was. Overall, I've had a pretty positive experience through Pottsgrove and take pride in being a Falcon.

I think the current administrative staff is moving in a positive direction. The school is improving, as measured by test scores, rankings, and college choices by recent graduates. AP participation is climbing. My favorite memory of senior year is the college breakfast. Seniors attending college or joining the military were invited to a breakfast for their families. Dr. Ziegler (the principal) went up to every single student and congratulated them and their families.
What I loved most at Pottsgrove, was the close knit community. Our grade/class size was about 250 students, which allowed for many friendships and connections with many different people.
Sporting events were always a big deal because everyone knew who the athletes were. These situations allowed for even more bonding between classmates.
