i am a student at scranton high school and i love this school. I enjoy going to school because everybody makes you feel great. It is a wonderful enviornment to learn and challenge yourself because the teachers are always there when you need them. At the beginning of the school year everybody is having trouble getting adjusted back to going to school, people tend to do worse at the beginning but once the school year progresses forward you become more apt to school because of the teachers' warm heart and caring!!!! I love Scranton

This school is a great place to send your children. The teachers care about each chld and it is the safest school environment and community I have ever seen. Students are offered all the classes that can be offered at a larger school due to their building improvements and additions of computer and technology resourses. All children are encouraged to participate in as many extracurricular activites as they wish, and I believe these students get a very well-balanced educational experience.
