My children had and are having a positve experience with the Shippensburg schools. The "hands on" learning style of most of the teachers is greatly appreciated!

The quality of the academic programs is based heavily on the great abilities of the teachers to encourage learning in their classrooms. Most extracurricular activities are available and even some that I have not seen in other schools.

I have a child enrolled at Ship and I have to say I regret my decision of sending her there. The school is so disorganized! They fail to annouce important things and focus too much on sports. They need a staff that is committed to what they're doing. My daughter's math teacher refused to teach the class and allowed them have lesiure time on the computers instead of focusing on acedimcs. The assistant principal is a discrace to the entire school district he elimnated all assemblies and other school activties. He needs to either be fired or removed. He is the main cause of the school's trouble.

I'm a parent of two recent SAHS graduates (2003 and 2006). Both of my daughters went on to college at small private liberal arts colleges, and both major in biology. One is presently in graduate school, having graduated cum laude with honors, while the other is a Dean's list student in her junior year. Both kids have done very well in their respective endeavors, and both believe that their SASD education has contributed substantially to their present academic success. No school district can do much for kids who don't want to work and whose parent don't expect them to do so. The percentage of graduates who go on to college from SAHS is not that impressive (this is rural South-central PA after all), but for those with the proper drive and work ethic, the SAHS classes and teachers will help them get where they want to go.

This school is okay but it could be a lot better. To me this school picks favorites(teacher's pets, etc). This school's administration is good but they do overreact on certain things. SASHS's biggest problem is the whole favorites thing it ridiculous.

I feel that it is a good school for fundementals for this region, they actually take the time to help you with your problems. Although I think it is too much of a small town, and some of the authroity figures of this school, give in to small town gossip.

As illustrated by the above examples, Shippensburg area schools, despite good intentions, are less than satisfactory in preparing students in the basics of math, science, reading and writing. I found myself ill-prepared for upper-level education, especially when compared with my fellow students from more urban areas such as Baltimore or Washington, D.C. Though the greater Shippensburg area is able to offer a safe, close-knit community in which to raise children, its isolation, more often than not, works in its disadvantage. I sincerely hope that these shortcomings have been examined and improved in the six years since my graduation.

I am a current student at Shippensburg Area High School. Overall this is a pretty decent school. The school is a very close knit group of people. Most students families know each other. A lot of the parents and teachers actually went to SASHS, graduated then went on to the university. Over the past 3 years the number of students has drastically increased. You may only have a few minutes to eat lunch. The hallways are becoming very crowed. Sometimes even to a point where you are at a stand still. A lot of students elect to go to the Franklin County Career and Tech School in a nearby town. There are a lot of student teachers are always in the building. There are many courses to choose from. There are not a lot of options of early granduation. The co-op program for senors is lacking. Shippensburg High is a 'nice' place to grow up.

Overall, I have loved my time at Shippensburg. It is a friendly environment the we are challenged and well cared for by teachers, staff, and administration. I recommend the school to anyone looking to move to the area, it prepared myself well for college.
