I liked the intimacy of my school. I had a very good relationship with all of my teachers, and they were always willing to help me. I feel like I am receiving a good education. However, the small size has also had some drawbacks. There were not many club opportunities, and I was limited in the classes that I was able to take.

A rather nice, quiet school full of personality and excitement. Having gone to the Saltsburg schools my whole life, I say that the education offered is superb for the quaintness of it all, and the teachers are personable and friendly. The only thing that could be better would be the attitude of the students, who have begun to be too lax about their futures, and spend more time fooling around than sitting down to work.
Saltsburg-Middle High School is a small school in a rural community. The academics are decent and I have learned a significant amount that will help me in college. However, it is not very diverse, there are virtually no clubs or anything extracurricular other than sports (with mediocre teams and mean coaches with favoritism). Also, certain families with reputations or involvement are preferred over students who have families unable to provide the same things that favorited families provide.
