Great school! Moved here for the schools and have not been disappointed! The staff is wonderful, even when your child has a hard time. I have three kids and one has trouble and the other does very well. Both were given the opportunity to excel. They both love it and we have been very happy with the environment the school provides. Both will be ready for college and what life experiences are next.

This is an excellent school and District, well managed with mostly excellent staff. Both my kids go there. They have the second lowest tax rate in York County, yet consistently deliver outstanding performance on just about every metric, as compared to other schools in the County (which spend much more on a $ per student basis) and the State, with plenty of opportunity to excell through honors, AP courses and College dual - enrollment. Serious students are well prepared to excell in College. They have a good variety of varsity and extracurricular activities and have acheived a substantial amount of accolades at the State level particularly for a school of this modest size. The facilities are not elaborate but are very clean and well-maintained

I am an SHS alumni, and I have to say that unless things have changed, when I went on to Penn State, I didn't learn anything NEW in college until my senior year. I felt BEYOND prepared for college. I write for my current job, and the skills I learned from the English department are carried with me on a daily basis, 12 years later. If you're a parent considering moving to this school district, you will not (or should not) be disappointed.

Susky is a slightly above average high school. It is far too easy to get straight A's without doing any work or learning anything even in the so-called honors and AP courses. The guidance department is probably one of the worst in the nation. The athletics, on the other hand, are top notch, if high school sports is what's important later in life.

Not much of a choice in selecting which high school to attend. The principal seems to be very good and very open to 'all' students and parents. The guidance counselors are awesome. The curriculum is very good. The problem in this school is many of the students and at least one teacher that I know of make racist remarks and allow inappropriate conversations in classrooms that could lead to bigger problems. The principal handles situations promptly but something more should be done so that it doesn't keep reoccurring. The zero tolerance should be more strictly enforced. My child has done quite well curriculum-wise.

My child attended Susquehannock for two years until I finally pulled her out. The teachers were entirely ineffectual and the courses were on the level of an elementary school.

Susquehanna High School is a great school, my daughter goes there she is in the 11th grade. And we were thinking about moving to Maryland being closer to my husbands and my job, and she just threw a fit about it. She loves the school, she absolutely loves the teachers there also.

I think this school is very good. I go there and I would send my kids and grandchildren there. I love that school. If I was given the choice to go to a different school I wouldnt. I have gotten a very well rounded education from Susquehannock and I dont think I could get a better education from any other school in the county.

My children attend this school. It's a typical HS with one exception: the school board. There is no Christian forgiveness present whatsoever with the Board. Zero tolerance equals no education in Southern York County!

SHS appears to be a very clean and well maintained school. The staff frequently take extra time to work with individual students needing help or guidance. The parents at Susquehannock are a key part in the success of the school.

susquehannock is a great school. the staff is excellent, well educated, supportive and really love their jobs. the athletics are outstanding and the kids really take what they are doing seriously. the music department is great as well and has won many awards. the extra clubs are great as well and there is something for everyone. the choice of academics is great...but the teachers really expect alot from all levels of their students. its a great choice for anyone considering it!

SHS is a great school for new students. This school has excellent academic programs and has many ellectives to choose from. SHS' sports teams are about this best in the state. This school is great and if you are looking for a school, be sure to check into SHS(Susquehannock High School). This school district is also great(SYC- Sounthern York County).

My daughter has been in the SYC school district from the beginning and I have to say that as she enters into her junior year, I have no complaints. There is a great push for parental involvement and their are many opportunities for the students to participate in the arts and sports. The curriculum prepares them for college life. As the mother of a high school student, I feel very comfortable with the administration as far as feeling free to voice my concerns or to ask questions. Drugs and alcohol use is present among the study body like many other high schools; however, the 'zero tolerance' rule is deeply in effect here.
