Map of Montour High School address.

I attended the high school from 2009-2013 and have been in the Montour School District my whole life. When I was there, Dr. Boyer, the now ex-superintendent, definitely did some damage to the school quality. However, they have a new one and are hopefully on the way up. I think that Montour is a pretty good school district as far as public schools in the area go, and we were very fortunate to have many CHS, AP, and honors courses available to us that put me ahead in college. There are definitely some extra curricular programs that are favored more than others. Basically, if you're an athlete and choose to coast through on that, you can. Far too many teachers will pass you just because you're on the football team. A little pathetic, but not the only school that is like that unfortunately. The teachers are hit and miss. While I was there, the math department was overall pretty excellent. Mrs. DeRose and Mrs. Brennan are particularly wonderful math teachers. The English was in pretty rough shape, but again in comparison to other schools in the area, it was acceptable. The other areas of education were pretty average. Overall, despite some flaws, my time at Montour was pretty great.

I am pleased with Montour High School. My daughter, a senior in January of 10 transferred to Montour High School. We had transferred from Mount Pocono School district and I found out she almost had all the requirements for grad. Thankfully, she had not much to do complete to graduate. I am grateful she was on her game, and Montour could see it. At first, they thought she was behind but we found out she was ahead in all her classes. I am staying because I have 2 other children rising to the High School in 2014.

This school is at least 3 years behind in academics. My daughter withdrew from this school after going for two weeks, because she was too smart and they refused to move her up a grade.

I think Montour High School has great teachers, who know what they are talking about. On open house I met my daughter's history teacher. He was awesome and sounded like he knew what he was talking about. She really likes all of her teachers.
