Towanda Area Junior/Senior High School Reviews

Ultimately, the overall student body's attitude is disheartening. Few are motivated to do their work, but it isn't the teachers' problem. Our community has its advantages and disadvantages, but one word that best describes it is tight-knit. I found success with the curriculum and was a competitive applicant to T20 colleges. There are limitless extracurricular opportunities for those seeking them. Our test scores reflect the average student attending; they aren't a good indicator of success for hard-working students. We have tons of school spirit when it comes to football and wrestling. Basketball and volleyball are gaining popularity, as well as soccer. The band even has its own fanbase. Our schedule has been inconsistent, with the most recent change going from a 10 period day to A and B block schedules with 70 minute periods. For the general things, you can go to our website at tsd.k12.pa.us.

My time at Towanda High School was unforgettable. All of the students, teachers and other faculty are all so welcoming to everyone that walks through those doors. There is a very supportive nature among the community of the school. There is a place for everyone as there is an incredibly accepting atmosphere and that is something I will always treasure about Towanda High School.
Very good personable teachers with the intention to actually help, however, repeated problems with some students has caused many problems throughout the school. Needs to improve safety protocol.
