Read what parents are saying about Shamokin Area High School
This school prioritizes its sports programs over education. I almost failed out of university because what I was told by this school I had learned (with A's to show for it), either wasn't learned or wasn't learned up to par with the rest of the students. I ended up having to learn a lot of math concepts I should have learned in high school on my own time while trying to complete engineering classes with barely passing grades. I learned after I graduated that the most beneficial programs to my future had been cut from the Shamokin Area High School Curriculum, likely due to cuts in state education funding. I learned from other college bound students that they also felt that their education at Shamokin Area High School did not adequately prepare them for a future. The facilities at this school are very good , and I can tell that the administration is probably trying to do the best they can with a lacking tax base and a lack of state funding, but I just wasn't prepared.
