I am a senior at Coatesville Area Senior High School. For the most part I have had an amazing experience at Coatesville. I have lived here all of my life and gone through the Coatesville Area School district K-12. The only issue I would acknowledge is the administration at the high school and the school board. Issues during the pandemic have not been resolved even though they have had 8 months to plan a return to school. The 2020-2021 school year has been very difficult for many students and administration has not been making it an easier. Other than that, Coatesville has a bad reputation that just doesn't so it justice. It has great diversity and a great community.

What I love most about Coatesville is that it is a very unified school district. This past year, a teacher's daughter had cancer. Our response was to wear yellow at football games and to school to symbolize our support for the teacher and his family. If I could change one thing about Coatesville it would probably be the current math program. Coatesville uses CPM, which stands for College Prep Math. CPM requires students to learn math in groups by teaching each other. It minimizes teacher instruction and the textbooks lack examples. There has been a movement among parents and teachers to remove this program, but so far nothing has been done. I am hoping that it will be removed in the future.
My experience was fantastic! So many course choices, excellent teachers, and opportunities to explore different pathways for career readiness.
