I think Central Bucks is one of the best school districts in the all of Pennsylvania! It offers a variety of challenging courses at all levels, including academic, honors, and AP courses. In addition, the amount of after-school activities is amazing. Every student has a club or sport that they can join to get involved. Overall, I would not change anything about the district. The teachers are great and students are all prepared for college thanks to Central Bucks!

I went to East, so my review is based off of my experience there. The education is fantastic! I know several people who have gotten into great schools such as Duke, Johns Hopkins, UPenn, and UChicago. The athletic programs are rather good as well; students receive sports scholarships every year. There's not much diversity, though.
As we all know, High School can be a very difficult times. As a current senior at Central Bucks West, I can say my high school experience has been above average. The Central Bucks School District does an excellent job in preparing their students for college. Every year in advisory there are certain requirements for graduation, such as a practice job resume, or a career finder survey. Although this seemed silly at the time, I have benefited in the long run. The guidance counselors are always there to help with college questions whether its college search questions, or financial questions. I Believe I have received a higher end education from Central Bucks. I never felt behind academically, because my teachers were always available to help me whether it was before, during, or after school. All of the teachers provide plenty of resources for us to review and ask questions about the next day. I feel prepared to take the next step and attend college.
