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.
