Strath Haven High School Reviews

Strath Haven is a great public high school. It is one of the bests in Pennsylvania and deserves this recognition for its (for the most part) wonderful, engaging teachers and overall desire for students to succeed. Outside extracurriculars and sports are managed very well and not to mention how amazing the music program is and the opportunities it provides. Strath Haven is the type of school where being in the band is cool (there are just over 400 students in the band) and sports like cross country are very popular. Sometimes the overachieving nature of the school can be stressful, hence the nickname “Stress Haven”, but in the end it is all manageable and worth it. Students who appreciate how good the education here is will get a lot out of their time and learn lessons useful for the rest of their lives.

Strath Haven has something to offer all students. Overall, the teachers are very good and are interested in what the students are involved in outside of their classroom. The band, sports teams, theater programs and the general arts programs are very strong. When I talked to friends who are in college, they say that Strath Haven prepared them well for college!
Decent mix of teachers, some really good ones, however, in that mix there are a few whose employment is honestly questionable. Large variety of classes for any interests. Definitely prepares you for college, if not too much. Extracurriculars are wide spread and diverse, they are really encouraged and almost anyone can find something they like. Sports are a bit overhyped, but are okay if someone is interested in them- They do take up a lot of time, from experience. Most of the guidance department is helpful and they offer many resources for college searching and applying.
Overall, I am grateful for the opportunities and education given to me by Strath Haven.
