Solanco High School Ratings & Reviews
Horrible. An absolute waste of four years. I would've been better off taking my chances as a drop-out. In fact a high school diploma from solanco is the equivalent of dropping out in the real world. All the abuse solanco has left on me will affect my life forever. Do your kids the greatest favor and STAY AWAY FROM SOLANCO HIGH SCHOOL.
Go to a school board meeting or two. Quite often included in there are students that do not meet the typical criteria I have grown accustomed to elsewhere. I think it is easy to disparage a school and it's effort when I only see a school as reflective of the community it represents. I disagree with a whole laundry list of things, I could fill a page, but I almost understand when operational realities are juxtaposed against state politics, local and school board prejudice and bias, union demands, nepotism along with an unrealistic evaluation of educational success. Stay on top of your kids, assume responsibilty for their actions and results, but don't necessarily agree to all of the advanced class mandatory req to get into the AP classes. Get involved, ask questions and don't always believe the answers. The school needs to eliminate subjective teacher analysis, drug testing for "co-op" participation, and after middle school they need to do a better job supporting I.T. in an agricultural enviroment. There are not many private options but if you have the where-with-all...that is what I recommend.
The principal is outstanding and cares about not only our kids who we intrust in her care,but she cares about her staff.And it shows in the enthusiasm of both teachers and kids to keep our country competitive on the world stage.
Solanco High School is my home. I love this school and wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The teachers are caring and want to see you do good. Our sports teams have had success in the last few years and the school spirit is at an all time high. The PSSA scores are very good and we have a high % of above proficent test scores.
My experience with Solanco High School has been mostly positive. I feel that the guidance counselors, specifically, really reach out to parents and students to help prepare them for college. I have been sent information about programs, courses and scholarship opportunities without asking. My son has access to AP courses and dual enrollment classes. (Much more that I ever received at my high school) My only negative comment would be that a few teacher my child has had were not very good. After dealing with these teachers, I finally gave up. I do recommend to other parents that they should not let their children take that teachers' class. Otherwise, I am completely happy with this high school.
