Throughout my four years of Selinsgrove Area High School, I have been exposed to new opportunities and experiences. The teachers here were able to help me in being successful and allowing students to be well-rounded. There are many clubs, sports, and advanced classes that are not available in other schools. We also able to enter in the ACE program, which allows students to go to Bloomsburg University and gain college credits as a senior for a semester or two. We are also able to sign up for dual enrollment classes at Susquehanna University. We have great sports teams with athletes who go to District championships and have been awarded for their accomplishments. Our ever-expanding list of clubs allow us to do many activities outside of school. For example, the Key Club goes to different Churches and Nursing Homes where students must do community service in food drives and volunteer work.

I really liked that I had many opportunities for students to figure out who they are. Selinsgrove had many, many clubs for students to participate in, such as Bible club, French, Spanish, FBLA, FFA, Art, Music, Literature, and many more. They also had several sports for athletes to participate in including field hockey, baseball and softball, football, tennis, soccer, lacrosse, etc..
My experience at Selinsgrove High School started my sophomore year, due to me doing cyber school for freshman year. I was definitely not ready to start high school at first, but there was a ton of people helping me a long the way. My senior year Selinsgrove made the decision to start drug testing due to multiple students overdosing on various drugs. I think this has helped decrease the amount of drugs being used in this area. I also wish to see us get metal detectors to ensure the safety of the students with all the recent shootings. I'd also love to see us create more clubs for students to get more involved. Overall my high school experience was average, but having amazing teachers and awesome friends made it special to me.
