Council Rock School District Reviews

If you have a special needs child - this is NOT the district for you.
After many years of dealing with them, I can attest to the fact that they provide only what they deem appropriate. If you are educated enough to realize that you can ask for more, they will fight you tooth and nail, to avoid doing so, due to the costs involved.
I have had to utilize education advocates, mental health professionals, and education lawyers - most of which were to no avail. The few instances CR did what they were supposed to were due to liability issues. In other words, I had them over a barrel and that is the reason they decided to do the 'right thing'.
That said, I have another child with no issues, no IEP and his education went smoothly.
Morale of the story - if you are deciding to send your child to this school district and you child has special needs and an IEP - run, don't walk, and take your school tax dollars elsewhere!
Review Council Rock School District
Council Rock has a very high ability to produce an environment that will make students college ready and lead them to be successful. They push strong academics before anything else and have various course levels for each kind of student. There are many clubs and sports to take part in many academic clubs place each year in state and national competitions. The diversity is very low, mainly the school consists of upper class white individuals with very low populations of minorities. Most of the students are kind to each other but there are some who think because of their wealth they are superior to the less fortunate students. Overall it is an amazing environment with teachers and faculty who will spend the time with the students to sculpt them to their maximum potential. Students will come out of here with great readiness for college and success
Council Rock has amazing teachers, athletics and arts programs, extracurricular activities, and more. It's been a great couple years at this high school!
