Coatesville Area School District has shaped me in to the person I am today. I am very thankful to have been surrounded by such amazing teachers and students throughout my journey in Coatesville. I believe that I am academically prepared for the journey I will be starting in post secondary school. My parents have instilled in me to have that drive to be successful and never give up my dreams. Coatesville has given me so many resources and materials to help me better myself into becoming the successful person I will be one day. I will always, always have Coatesville pride.

Coatesville Area Senior High School has been all a student could ask for. Despite the common ideal about what the school district has to offer, it has been essential to my development as an individual. Coatesville has wonderful AP teachers that prepare you completely for college. The lower level teachers are all level minded and patient. Athletics at Coatesville are top notch; whether you are new to a sport or have been playing your whole life there is a spot for you or your child no matter what. If i could change one thing about the school district, I would like the clubs to have more recognition. S.P.I.R.I.T, and bridge are two clubs focused on diversity and overcoming oppression should be recognized more to gain support.
Coatesville gets a really bad reputation for the quality of the schools, but as in most cases, education is something you have to work for yourself. If you don't want to learn anything, you aren't going to, but if you push yourself and accept the help that teachers and staff are willing to give you as well as doing work on your own time, you can get a lot out of the experience. One of the best things about Coatesville is the people- you'll meet just about anyone under the sun in the city and during high school, and even after you graduate there's a strong sense of community. It really helped me growing up to feel like I was a part of something bigger. The academics are somewhat lacking in rigor, but like I said, if you want to work hard, there are lots of amazing teachers who can help you achieve what you need to get into a great post-secondary or technical school.
