Worst school ever. Worst place to live ever. Everyone only cares about drama and almost every girl that graduates the year after gets pregnant and can't afford to raise a child.

This school has its share of problems as many do, to much administration not enough treating all students the same. But don't be afraid of this school as a 1978 grad. Myself and many others were prepared for life,which is hard to teach!!!

Southern Huntingdon County school district is a fantastic school for children who are there to LEARN. In reading most of the posts that are negative regarding the school, they are mainly from students. From an adult who has attended and went on to pursue a higher degree, I felt very well prepared to reach my educational goals from the foundational education I recieved at SHC's schools. I attended more than one high school and found that ultimately the little country school offered more challenging work. Also ask any employer who hires graduates from SHC and Huntingdon's Juniata colleg and they will tell you the character of the people is over all a higher caliber!

I have taught and my children have attended a number of schools in Pennsylvania as well as other states. Southern Huntingdon County High School is by far, the best public school I have ever encountered. As a rule, Southern graduates develop the most important indicator of success: Character, and a strong work ethic...When they reach the post high school world, they literally soar above the competition. I am so very thankful the structure, the programming, the supervision, and the thoughtful dedication of the staff at Southern Huntingdon..And, no, I don't work there...But, I've sent 5 children through..And, they are doing great work in college, work, and life..And, so is almost everyone compared to other areas...The Appalachian lifestyle might not be for everyone, but the quality education, the character, and the strong work ethic you find here is what has made this country great.

I really liked this school. Sure there were some hassles, but overall this school was great! It felt like home to me. I am graduating now so I hope that people in the future can appreciate this school the way I did.

This school has a lot of teachers that like to sit on their comptuers and send Im's back and forth all day. they like to be in little clics and not help the students. most of them are just there for the pay check and they know that. and there are some there that like to do stuff for the kids. the prinicpal is a joke.. he is soo unfair to a lot of kids in that school, kids get away wtith stuff and then there are others that get detentions for it. so yea he is a joke.

This school worries more about looks/piercings/hair color/sports than the education of the students. It is a matter of who you are. My children get a better education from me & doing Blended than the time spent in the classroom, minus all the hassles. I could go on but basically it comes down to the school is a joke!

I was a graduate of Southern Huntingdon, and I'll be honest with you. This is probably the absolute worst School in the state. Parents aren't told anything. Teachers express total apathy. Basically 150 words doesn't give me nearly enough to explain what is wrong with this school.

This school has its up and downs but, mostly downs. Kids can be cruel and that's exactly what I hate about this school.I feel there's not a lot of parent involvement. For example, my mom has no idea about anything that happens in the school. They should keep parents updated. The only thing they update her on is if I do something wrong! I think CAMS(Chambersburg Area School District) is better than Southern Huntingdon. So, my parents and I are moving to Chambersburg!

In my opinion for the two years that i was there the southern huntingdon school system was really unfair to people who werent popular or who were in foster care. they think differently about everyone and are extremely prejudicial, and racial.
