    "The Altoona Area High School is easily the best Secondary Educational School in West Central Pennsylvania. Most teachers are more than willing to help and assist students."

    "The high school is awesome, it offers a variety of things to do. The school also offers resources so you can improve SAT scores. The teachers, the principals, and more go out of their way to see you successful."

    "Most of the teachers seem to enjoy their jobs and the students, but along with the students, no one seems content with how the district is fun. Many students hate coming to school, where expression is limited and the administration is concerned more about the holes in jeans and shoes than how the students are doing."

    "I am a high school senior at Altoona Area High School. My overall experience has been okay. I feel that only half of the teachers at our school really want to be there and the ones that don't really show it. Our 12th grade principal could care less about anybody but himself. If you have a problem, don't bother going to him, he will tell you your "problem" doesn't meet the requirements, that make him have to help you. The food is god awful. Everything seems so processed, frozen or under cooked. Even the salads. But there are some positives, I feel Altoona has an excellent educational system for the underclassmen but are lacking a little on college prep for the twelfth graders."

    "I liked the teacher. Them and the counselors and even the janitor made a very big impact on my life and I take lessons from them even to this day. While some say that you wont have the same friends from high school later in life. I have made brothers and sisters at this school, both graduates and underclassmen."
