    Neshannock School has been the worst experience of my children' s lives. I have seen all kinds of prejudice going on. From what color you are to how much money you have and if you play a sport. The most disturbing is if your child doesn't learn well they are shunned on. They make the child noticeable to all of the class mates that they have trouble leaning. The child then doesn't want to learn because they are embarrassed! There is so much bullying going on its pathetic. I am speaking from what I have saw and what the children talk about. I have heard and experienced first hand things that go on. The teachers in Neshannock School district need to take a college course in child psychology. What ever happened to the compassionate teachers? All the teachers want to do is get the numbers on the chart. They don't look at the children individually. That might be to much work for them.

    I currently attend Neshannock Jr/Sr. High School and I find the teachers attentive and the classes challenging. Yes the school is 'cliquey' but everyone has their own clique and it is rare to find someone avoid another student just because of who they hang out with. It is even more rare to not be able to find your own clique. This is a very thight-knit community and school. Everyone knows everyone and it's nice that way.

    Excellent school! There are very advanced programs devised for Science & Math. I went there and excelled in college! It is a competitive school. There are not a lot of students but it is more difficult to be at the top of your class than neighboring schools.

    Neshannock's teaching staff is wonderful! The Junior High Principal plans so much activities for the Jr. High. The school is known to be... 'cliquey'... but other than that you will like Neshannock!

    I think for the area that Neshannock High School is the best the New Castle area has to offer. Students have many opportunities for growth and the staff offers students as much support that is needed to succeed and more.

    It has excellent education mostly pushes students but helps along the way. Teachers are friendly. Though it is a very cliquey area. Money is a big factor with the students. Great at all sports and involvement.

    Weak principal if that were to change the foundation is in place for a great school.

    My son is very well prepared for college and I am happy with his high school education. He is enjoying his Freshman year at Purdue.

    The education part is good and the activities are good also but the student body and teachers are too competitive with one another.
