This school is a very good school for any student. Forget about the bad talk Nanticoke gets, It isn't true. Our math PSSA scores are great and our reading scores are improving. We have a lot of interesting things avalible, from science olympiad to GNA marching band. Our high school basketball team has always been good, from boys to girls, and we're working on football. Greater Nanticoke Area has two fairly new buildings, elementary and middle school, that are wonderful! I strongly suggest this school.
