My daughter is a freshman at the high school and she has excellent teachers who truly care about her and a terrific group of drama-free friends.

I love this school, just like every other school in the world we have our issue but nothing major and certainly nothing that limits a student's ability to preform his or her school work.

i go to susquehanna middle school and i do not like the fights everyday and the drama and the academics kids in my school really don't take them seriously.

I love this school. The range of diverse students is never ending. Anyone that makes any disrespectful remark towards our school should take a closer look.

I think Susquehanna High School is a quality high school providing a quality education to our children. There have been discipline problems this past year but parents are rallying around and starting to get involved. Teachers, parents and students working together can solve school problems.
