I am the parent of a graduated and current high school student who has attended South Middleton School District since kindergarten. Positive things. It is a small school and community. I know most of the families/friends of my children. Negative things. There are some teachers that are excellent, but most are mediocre. My child is an average student who in many ways seems to have fallen through the cracks. Unless you have a bright student or one with special needs, there is not much attention given to the average. This carries over to the guidance counselor office as well. It is very disappointing, especially from such a small school.

As a former student of Boiling Springs high, I can say that this school went far beyond my expectations. I went into high school thinking it was going to be uncomfortable and confused. The students and teachers will do everything they can to make new students of any race, feel at home. In my junior year, I was even given the opportunity to work with students who came in with disabilities, or challenges in their life. I was sad to hear that I wouldn't be graduating a Bubbler, but I'll never forget what that school offered me.

As a former student, the only strength this school district has is an affluent community that provides students up-to-date technology and reading material. With the exception of the English department, the majority of the teachers are sub-par at best and most of the new staff are incompetent in regards to teaching methods and understanding individual learning differences among students. I attend a 4 year University and the only post-graduate preparation I have used was taught to me by my English teachers. The counselors are overloaded with students and students who are in dire need of social services do not get the care or attention they need to flourish in an academic setting. The counselors provide referrals to social services because there is no licensed social worker for the entire school district. Students are either labeled as college bound or are expected to pester their counselor into giving them information on colleges. If you have been there since kindergarten chances are you will be haunted by students who are forgotten, and social stratification that is early established. Half my graduating class is pregnant and/or raising kids in this town hoping to send them there. Ew

The school's strength lies in its close-knit community. However, due to its small size, the curriculum is restricted. And don't kid yourself, despite the seemingly idyllic atmosphere, there are all the problems with alcohol and drug use that many people associate with larger school districts.

Great student body, very welcoming and accepting to new students. The teachers are very willing to help students outside of class and go out of their way to help their students.

It is a small school. My children graduated from that school district, and they will not even send their children there.

I think boiling Springs high school is a good school. But I along with many other people think they should get Mr.Gallegher back. He was a good vice priciple and he is missed. The new vice principle is too strict!
