    "Blackhawk has been an overall great high school experience for me so far, being involved with taking pictures for different sports and being a part of the track team I feel has brought me closer to the student body as a whole, and school is more fun and entertaining that way. The annual school musical is one of my favorite things about Blackhawk, it is always performed to perfection, and very exciting to watch. If I could go back I would still want to go to Blackhawk High School, the respect and dignity among teachers and students is unmatched, and I believe that this environment had helped shape me into who I am today."

    "My experience at Blackhawk has been amazing. The school offers so many unique opportunities for its students. We also have the best of the best classes at Blackhawk. The variety of courses Blackhawk has to offer is excellent compared to schools around the area. I have loved my experience at Blackhawk and I wish I could do it all over again because there are still so many things I would like to do there."

    "We chose this school district because it was highly rated. We did not know that it was primarily a sports district and not an academic district. We had to enroll our children in classes at Penn State during their senior year to assure that they would be ready for college, despite the fact that they took AP classes at Blackhawk."

    "The teachers as a whole are great, treating students with respect and always listening to our ideas. However, the science department in particular at Blackhawk High School seems to be lacking interest from students, the teachers are not engaging in the lesson nor very helpful when students have questions. Most all of the teachers at Blackhawk are approachable and easy to talk to, and grade each assignment accurately. Overall, the teachers at this school do a fantastic job getting students involved and understand what they are learning in class, however there are few that students are not in favor of."

    "The AP science classes are woefully lacking in qualified teaching staff. Overall, the math department is only fair. Academics definitely takes a backseat to athletics, and bullying of academically and musically gifted students is ignored by staff. Some teachers and administrators participate in bullying students and/or placing them in dangerous situations."
