Mechanicsburg Reviews

1 review
Mechanicsburg is a very small town, there is very little job opportunities and diversity. The school system is very poor and not very resourceful. I was diagnosed with ADHD in grade school and they failed to give me the proper help which still effects me to this day. Not to mention the food is terrible and violates health code. They do not take care of the surroundings either, for example all of the water filters buttons are on red and have been all year. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet itself, its a great place to live on its own. I just wish it had a better education system that helps the kids who struggle and doesn't just keep passing them through the system like I have seen been done to many people.
