Shamokin Area is an amazing school filled with great people and plenty of opportunities. The teachers all take their jobs very seriously and try to make the students' experiences there pleasant. There is an abundance of sports and organizations to join, such as the volleyball team and interact club, and there is always some sort of community event going on. It's a fantastic place!

I say it's good because they have several amazing classes that I've gotten to take and great people I've met. There are a lot of amazing teachers and staff, and most try to make the classes interesting for the students. For example, every social studies class I've had since 7th grade has been absolutely amazing because of the teachers (otherwise I'd be a bit bored). My biggest issue with the school is that they fund the sports that don't do well, too much. And only about 25% of students do an art program (take an art class or do band) because of sever lack of funding. I also wish we had more classes and clubs, but I understand why we can't have a lot more, due to it being a small area. Though, a great thing is that there has been more diversity in the last two years, and a lot of people have become more accepting of different races, sexualities, and genders!
I have been attending this school district since Pre-K. My favorite thing about the district is how helpful the teachers are. Teachers are everything when it comes to school, they can make or break your whole experience. I have hardly ever had any issue with any teacher involved with the district. Each and every teacher is different, but they all have the same goal... which is to make sure every student heading out into the world is ready for what's to come!
