Pottsville Area High School Reviews
I recently just graduated from Pottsville Area High School. During my time there I was able to be involved as a cheerkeader and a member of several different clubs. I would say I was involved enough with a lot of aspects of that School to be able to give a valuable opinion. My time at Pottsville Area High School was unforgettable. Looking back, high school was a great past time. Though, during my time as a student there was a lot of things I would've changed about the school such as the overall energy the the school as a whole gave. I would've loved to be encouraged more and have more positive outlooks on school work, and life in general. The school has amazing school spirit and is filled with student that have the outmost potential, but I feel if we were all pushed just a little more many students would have a more prepared after high school life. Overall, it is a safe school with a big heart just in need of a little more guidance.
It is definitely the best school in the area in terms of higher level learning, but there are improvements that can be made. The district has mysteriously come up short money-wise and all of our field trips for the year have been cancelled because of busing costs. Kinda sucks considering it's my senior year. The administration supports the arts, which we are grateful for because not many administrations do. I feel well prepared for college because of the variety and type of courses offered here.
I enjoyed the extra curriculums at Pottsville High School, and that they were on top of their grading system. But one thing they could change is the way people bully one another. Some people feel unwanted due to other students looking at them differently.
