I was a student at Marple Newtown High school for all 4 years of my high school career, and I loved it! The teachers are very involved, and there are so many resources available to you. Copious amounts of computers and books. There are also so many after school activities and clubs. The teachers try their best to prepare you for college, and also offer AP and honors classes to take. I overall loved Marple, great atmosphere with no uniforms or academic pressure. The teachers really care about your education, which is why my class did so well! I wish most high schools were like this!

My freshman year of high school was overwhelming but the awesome staff made it easy to adjust to a different environment. My sophomore year was quite more challenging health wise. I was diagnosed with LCH a very rare medical condition in which I had to go through chemo therapy five days a week for eleven months . I loved how the staff came together to help have a successful year! My junior and senior year were much more enjoyable. Having an incredible staff of teachers and counselors allowed me to be successfully .
I was able to get into the college of my choice which is West Chester University
I transferred into the district my sophomore year of high school and I was so nervous. I was worried I wouldn't make friends and use this change as an excuse to fall behind in class. Thankfully, I met great friends right away and the teachers always helped me if i needed it to make sure I was always on top of my work. I can't imagine going to school anywhere else!
