Altoona Area High School Ratings & Reviews

my student is an honor roll student great attendance ,, does not cause any problems. he made one mistake in the lunchroom sliding a fork across the table, which he wasnt the only one. his punishment is thrown out of school for 3 days and 2 days in school, and it has also affected seating in the lunchroom, and not allowed to go on a field trip with the club he s involved in. schooling at gactc, attendance and grades, all for sliding a fork across the table, and wasnt told before hand of the consequences. i no longer have trust or respect for the school district or staff. i think there as been no common sense used and the huge punishment does not fit the crime in this case.

This school worships their football players (who aren't even that good?) great special education programs, but this school is way too concerned about appearances of their students and not about the kid themself

I am a former student and I must agree that the school takes great pride in its sports and music programs; however, one must look at the number of students able to participate in them. The school provided me with a concrete base to achieve greatness in my further education at both Penn State and Mt. Aloysius. I saw many Altoona teachers go above and beyond to try to help them. There are some students that struggle and unfortunately parents are always quick to blame the school rather than looking at the incomplete assignments and lack of interest. Altoona provides many areas to excel in with its elective courses as well as the partnership with Vo-Tech. If a student leaves this school district with nothing, then it is the parent's as well as the student's fault. Being overlooked is a lifetime battle; some overcome it, others make it an excuse.

As a former student, I must disagree with many of the disgruntled parents that do not feel the school offers a quality education. While athletics and involvement do seem to effect an appearance of favoritism, I do believe it is a direct result of the more intense contact between the active students and teachers and not as a result of favoritism. There are many ways to become involved and take advantage of the education; perhaps the disgruntled parents are too involved in other things to help their children take advantage of what is at their fingertips instead of looking down their noses at these advantages. One recommendation for improvement would be college-preparedness, not with curriculum but with overall preparedness and guidance, especially concerning financial aid.
