I would like to see better resources for college, and more guidance in picking a college. I think that the system of how things are done should be better. The teachers are amazing, at least the ones I’ve had, and are very supportive and understanding. They have helped me in school, but emotionally through my times of need and were very understanding. The sports are average, but spirit is very high. There are many opportunities for clubs in school and out of school. The lunch ladies are the sweetest women ever. Super sweet! I have developed such a relationship with all of them in just three years of being at the high school. Their words are so kind. It’s the little things. They also try and improve in any way that they can. It’s amazing!

Spring Grove Area High School is a great place to learn! There are so many fun and interesting classes that are available to students and the environment created for students is incredible. I enjoyed every year in high school and I'm so grateful for all of the teachers and faculty who work so hard for us.
I've only attended this school for two years and it has by far been the best school yet! I've met so many wonderful people here and the teachers are dedicated ad understanding. The atmosphere is very open and lighthearted. The only thing that I would change is the lack of school spirit.
