Alum: Mechanicsburg Area Senior High school has amazing and professional teachers who listen and collaborate with the students. They were flexible enough to meet the individual needs of myself and other students with class and learning learning. The music and arts program is excellent. Most high schools do not have a very significant music and arts program, but Mechanicsburg prides itself with a smashing musical performance every year, national award winning marching band and color guard, in addition to graphic and practical arts.

Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
