Ligonier Valley High School
#592 Best Public Elementary Schools in Pennsylvania
- Ligonier Valley School District, PA
- PK, K-12
Senior: For such a small school in a rural area, LVHS is a good school. Many teachers are friendly and willing to give extra help when I need it. My peers are all driven, well behaved individuals, & bullying isn't a major issue here. I never feel in danger when I am at school. Janitors and lunch ladies are super friendly too!
However, although I've been fortunate enough to have some of the greatest teachers in my school career, I have also had some of the worst. Some of my previous teachers have been judgmental and reluctant to help or answer questions. Some of the teachers are very biased and show favoritism, & most are lazy, neglecting grading for days or weeks, or giving packets instead of actually teaching. Many of my classes do not challenge me or my peers nearly enough for the caliber of education we are seeking in college. Food is mediocre & lacks variety. The school is almost entirely white, but solely due to our geographical area. Our minority students are not ostracized at all.

Dock Mennonite Academy
- Private School
- Lansdale, PA
- PK, K-12
Alum: My experience at Dock Mennonite Academy was one to remember. I always hear about students after they graduate do not stay in contact with their peers, but it isn't that way at Dock. Yes, most people you lose contact with but I have developed solid relationships with the people at high school and even the teachers that they still remember, care and keep in contact with you. When I go back for sports events the teachers and students who I went to school with genuinally care about you and what you are doing after graduating. It was and still is a caring environment!

Donegal Elementary School
- Mount Pleasant Area School District, PA
Parent: We like the environment at Donegal elementary. We love having the small school in our area and my our child has received a great education thus far. We are however unhappy after purchasing a home to find that the students living in this area will have to travel off the mountain for 4th-6th grade. This is very unfair to tax payers and their children.
