My children had and are having a positve experience with the Shippensburg schools. The "hands on" learning style of most of the teachers is greatly appreciated!

The quality of the academic programs is based heavily on the great abilities of the teachers to encourage learning in their classrooms. Most extracurricular activities are available and even some that I have not seen in other schools.

I have a child enrolled at Ship and I have to say I regret my decision of sending her there. The school is so disorganized! They fail to annouce important things and focus too much on sports.

This school is okay but it could be a lot better. To me this school picks favorites(teacher's pets, etc). This school's administration is good but they do overreact on certain things. SASHS's biggest problem is the whole favorites thing it ridiculous.

I feel that it is a good school for fundementals for this region, they actually take the time to help you with your problems. Although I think it is too much of a small town, and some of the authroity figures of this school, give in to small town gossip.

As illustrated by the above examples, Shippensburg area schools, despite good intentions, are less than satisfactory in preparing students in the basics of math, science, reading and writing. I found myself ill-prepared for upper-level education, especially when compared with my fellow students from ...  Read more

I am a current student at Shippensburg Area High School. Overall this is a pretty decent school. The school is a very close knit group of people. Most students families know each other. A lot of the parents and teachers actually went to SASHS, graduated then went on to the university. Over the past ...  Read more
