    Overall Experience: This school is like a big family. It has had major ups and downs, but in the end I am glad to have graduated from the school.

    Overall Experience: Personally, I hate being bumped into by arms, elbows, and backpacks when I'm calmly strolling down the hallways. There are just too many people packed inside of these hallways - it's ridiculous. I like all the activities and clubs that are available. Some teachers are great, and some are creepy and weird, but I guess you'll find that anywhere...

    Overall Experience: It was a pretty good school, nothing special. I wished some of the teachers were alittle bit more helpful.

    Overall Experience: I feel because the school is a public school that most of the students were not challenged educationally and more or less just drifted through each grade down the set path that they were told they should follow.

    Overall Experience: Neshaminy High School is a large school with a lot of options, whether it be the numerous AP courses offered here or the ease of availability to get help when one is struggling. When you go up to teachers to ask for help, I haven't come across one that wasn't eager to assist, but the key is actually getting up and asking. No one will help you if you don't think you need the help in the first place. Administrators are fair and helpful, and guidance counselors always find a way to fit in an appointment for you.
