Saucon Valley Senior High School Reviews

Saucon Valley Senior High School has many good qualities including strong academics and dedicated teachers. Although, the school has a large lack of diversity and connection between the different departments. For instance, the classes are primarily white, with similar opinion throughout. Thus, I believe it would beneficial for the school to nurture creativity and personal opinions of the student on a larger scale. This would allow for greater debate, learning, and growth in the individual. Moreover, the schedule needs revamping. It lacks a solid flow and with the rotating paw period lacks a strong foundation to truly promote the enrichment of the student. Ultimately, Saucon is a strong school district, but required changes on the fundamental level in order to continue growing and to become a more cohesive school community.

The teachers all vary. Some of them go above and beyond allowing the students to perform at their very best. However, there are teachers who could careless about the students. They only hand out busy work and I feel like I'm never learning. Since our school has turned into a paperless school for the most part, teachers are using Apple TVs and projectors for their lessons. If the teacher genuinely cares for the class and subject, they are all very passionate and willing to share their knowledge. The teachers will do everything they can inorder to teach the students.
I honestly couldn't imagine going to a different high school. Almost every person there has a kind heart and a well meaning. The teachers are willing to help. Students have a very nice relationship with at least one teacher. Most have more. The school counselors are always available. The student body gets along well with each other. The attendence at any school event is usually pretty high. I had an opportunity to transfer to a very pretentious private school, but I know this public school was thoroughly meant to be the high school for me.
