Strasburg High School is one of the worst schools to go to. Sports is the foremost part of this school and the coaching is horrible. The school is also filled with ignorance. My child had to deal with ignorance at this school on a daily basis. I have read the reviews others posted and things at this school are only getting worse. I would advise anyone who plans to enroll their children at this school to rethink. They should close this school and fire all the faculty and staff in it.

I love Strasburg HS. We moved to the area from Northern VA in 2005 because of the schools there. I have had one child graduate from the school and another is currently enrolled there. Next year I will have two in the school. My child had no problems getting accepted to a university. The school is clean and well maintained. Strasburg is noted for its sports programs but they do a great job academically too. There are Standards of Learning in Virginia and Strasburg HS is fully accredited in Virginia. My children have participated in sports, drama, band, FCCLA, Girls State. The Band has an excellent instructor and they brought back top awards in the state competitions last year. The community is very supportive of the school. Most of them are alumni. The disciplinary actions noted in another review were blown way out of proportion by the writer. There is a zero tolerance policy in effect at all the county schools and the students were informed of the possible penalties well in advance. I am very happy with my children attending this high school.

All around, Strasburg lacks a great deal of leadership. First and foremost, Strasburg's main focus is sports. If you are not related to a faculty member or do not play a sport, Strasburg High School does not care what you do. If a student falls off track, the school does nothing to help them. If anything the administration pushes them further away. The faculty and staff gossip and talk amongst themselves constantly. The town is small, so in a way it is inevitable. Teachers will punish students they don't like based on rumors. The disciplinary actions are terrible. For ex: Students at the high school have always "dipped" during school time for years. Just recently administration has taken the initiative to rid the school of such acts by suspending a high number of its students. Some of the students who had just made sports teams were kicked off a day after tryouts due to the matter. Overall, this is a terrible school as of right now. In the future, if they get a principal who knows how to deal with all types of children and not just athletes and honor students I'm sure things will improve however, its not looking up for the school.

june 30, 2009 I am not impressed with strasburg high school. the review on this website says 14 students per teacher thats not true my child attends strasburg high and the class rooms are over filled and in the cafeteria at lunch there are not enough chairs for the kids to sit down and eat their lunch. most of the teachers do a good job I have few complaints about the teachers, however the administration of the school could be more organized and have a better communication with the student body. Sports is at the forefront of this school, there needs to be a better balance for music and arts programs.It would really be great if academics were the forefront of the school.

Great school! My son was in school in Warren County and we moved to Strasburg, he was failing when in Warren County and very behind, it was a fight everyday to make him go to school, he now makes A's & B's and loves school! We have since moved back to Warren County after living in Strasburg for 3 years, and my son is still going to school at Strasburg High School, I'm more than happy to pay the tution fee, it's well worth it!

We moved here from Illinois three years ago.We love the school. The school is small but very big on extra curricular activities and parent involvement is encouraged. Teachers have a good relationship with the kids because of it being a smaller school.

The leadership at this school is a bit weak, to say the least. Recently, the Principal 'resigned' in the middle of the week and no information is being released as to the reason. Last June, the longterm Guidance Dept Secretary's 'contract' was not renewed for an 18th year. She was a gem and a great help to students when making plans for college. Now, it seems that the school is operating with major administrative handicaps and the students are the ones to suffer. The current Guidance Dept staff is not functioning in top form. As an example, we found out about the PSAT tests a day too late, and my 11th grader will not have another chance to take it.
