Strong Vincent High School Ratings & Reviews
Not a good school, although there are a few good teachers hidden away. For the most part it is anarchy at the school and not a lot of teaching or learning goes on there. I attended and graduated, with honors, SV without ever doing any actual studying and with out having met my "guidance counselor" even one time. I am so glad that my children do not attend this school and would never recommend anyone send their children there.
I'm a recent graduate from Strong Vincent High School. I believe that Strong Vincent is a good high school but only if you put effort into it. There are many student who go to strong vincent because it's location. A lot of the student that go there also don't care about their academics. I did and I got a lot out of it I'm even in college and doing well. The main issue with strong vincent, aside from students who go because the have to, are the rules. There are so many rules and so many regulations that it distracts teachers from the actual teaching process. They have spend time writing students up for breaking dress code instead of teaching them. If the students could get a little breathing room they may be able to actually learn rather than being suspended for wearing a hoodie.
sadly I must agree with the statement below. With the leadership more concerned with the facade of being "good" rather than doing the work of becoming good many of our young people are finding themselves stranded because of the agenda of the scools leaders
This school is broken from the top down. Strong Vincent is more concerned with getting students out the door than ensuring they receive a quality education. Teachers claim that the students are so terrible that they are unable to teach, however, the students at Strong Vincent desire structure and standards; when provided with these components, they are willing to work hard and meet goals. With that said, there are many students at the school who have no vested interest in their education and will make trouble but with a more supportive and visible administration (one less concerned with "looking good" as opposed to being good), relationships could be made that would help turn the school around. Sadly, I do not send my own child there because I do not feel that they would receive a good education or attend classes in a positive environment.
Strong Vincent is a bad high school the academics are bad, some teachers teach but don't really get you prepaired for the pssa, the rules are really strict, they make up new rules every week, its really a bad school, aslo the students aren't really nice. I would recommend this school out of the other Erie schools though.
