I am a previous student. I had an A-B average until ninth grade. I came across an algebra teacher whose teaching techniques did not work well with my learning style. I requested another class. I was denied. I fell behind in my classes and graduated late. I graduated by taking a college algebra course and received an A. Many intelligent students (including a previous (valedictorian) will attest to the fact that if you are not naturally brilliant, you will be "overlooked." There are a few exceptional teachers and many substandard. The leadership is lacking and I can guarantee (I came from a multi-generational "trail family") if your last name is not one of their well-loved, you may find success will not come as easily. Hard work is always essential in a successful school career, However, in Lackawanna Trail, if you struggle and request assistance, it will not be met in a nurturing manner. The "problem" always stems from the student in this facility. Take extreme consideration in choosing to send your child to this substandard learning institution. My children do and will continue to attend blue ribbon schools. The lack of support I endured will not continue.
