Franklin Regional Senior High School

- Franklin Regional School District, PA
Alum: I liked the teachers, people, cafeteria, and all of the students that went there. I also liked how they had so many classes that prepared you for college whenever you graduated. The attitudes of the teachers are what was really astonishing. They had the mentality that no student was better than the other, no matter how smart or mental that student was. Everybody was treated as equals. No teacher had a favorite student that he or she would just pass without any work being done. They helped and made you earn the grade that you deserved. This was truly a great and wonderful school that I hope every student will have a chance to experience. Honestly, I would like to no alterations to this school since they are doing a amazing and spectacular job.

Niche User: Attending Villa Maria was one of the best decisions I could have made, and I wish I could go back. I came into college feeling extremely prepared, and I very quickly realized just how great of a job Villa did in prepping me for college. I was able to succeed in my classes from the start, whereas many of my peers who did not have as strong of foundation struggled. Villa made me into the person I am today. The school taught me to never second guess myself. The school helps form independent and strong women by empowering them to engage in class discussions, teaching them how to succeed in college and beyond, and giving them many opportunities to lead. The sense of community and family at Villa is something I have never experienced before. Each faculty member, staff member, and student at the school cares so deeply for one another. All want to see everyone at the school succeed and work to make that happen. The school pride seen at Pep Rallies, games, plays, performances, etc. is unreal and extremely touching. The traditions at the school not only link the students and alum, but they are also extremely fun! The school races robot pigs, classes sing songs to one another, the girls dress up for Halloween, and the Pep Rallies are always an event! There are more sentimental traditions as well, such as Daisy Chain when the Juniors officially become seniors, Carol and Ring when the girls are given their class rings, and Big/Little events in which the girls are assigned a "Big Sister" upperclassmen! I am so proud to be a Villa Marian for copious reasons. If I could, I would do it all over again!

Kiski Area High School

Sophomore: The school is pretty, the atrium and upstairs are really nice. I do think the auditorium should be redone without carpet floors but it probably won't happen. The teachers are very nice and helpful and there is a wide variety of classes that you can take to help prepare you for college. The block-schedule also prepares you for college as well! There is some variety when it comes to sports. It is a very nice school and the staff and classes are awesome!
