I have been dealing with this school for many many years. This school claims they are against bullying, but the teachers and principals ARE the Bullies. Everyone has had their say about the recent past principal as well, but the new principal is obviously trying to make a name for himself now, but going about it the wrong way. Very unprofessional behavior! Very child like. I would NOT recommend this prison to ANYONE! The faculty in this place is enough to make anyone want to quit and give up.

When I went to school there, many of the teachers I had also taught my parents. (They had been out of school for well over 30 years before I got there) The materials were just reused year after year so students could hand down assignments to under class to get them passing grades. Many of the teachers were just buying their time until they could retire, so most of my senior year we had nothing but study halls for the better part of the day. I'm sure that has changed since I graduated- but I know that I was not prepared at all for the academic challenges of college.

I am an alumi of this fine establishment. I got additional help from Upward Bound that was offered through the school. The school and UB worked very well together to get students ready for SATs and college prep. I'm happy to see the marching band grew over the years. I was scared it'd been phased out with dwindling numbers when I was a member.

You get what you put in at Cambria Heights. There are plenty of opportunities for extracurricular activities, sports, and challenging academic courses and activities. In particular, the theater and music programs are top notch. I found the preparation for college to be sufficient, but an unmotivated student may find themselves leaving with a less than stellar education.

The classes seem to be pretty challenging at Cambria Heights, which may help students be well-rounded. The school pushes very strongly for performance on the PSSAs, for better or worse. Which in turn, doesn't really count for college. Extracurriculars are great. Cambria Heights has a strong music and theater program and several great sports. No one is looked down on for not doing activities, but we are encouraged to do so to reach our full potential and go to a good school with great credentials.

The school had one great counselor to help get you ready for college. ALso a few good teachers, then there are some who need to retire or get fired..Overall the school staff needs lots of improvement, if possible i recommend attending Central Cambria or Penn Cambria or any other school. This high school does not have graduating seniors prepared for college!!!
