Marple Newtown School District Reviews

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!
Review Marple Newtown School District
My experience in the Marple Newtown School district has been an overall pleasant one. I moved to the area in 2006 when I was just in 4th grade, and was immediately welcomed into the community. I am a graduate of Marple Newtown Senior High School. I had nothing but quality teachers in this safe and caring environment. I had freedom to choose my classes an had great guidance junior and senior year when it came time to start looking into college. I felt well prepared and independent in my decision making. I had a great guidance counselor and wonderful, caring teachers. The food could be approved in quality and healthy options, but overall it was a good experience.
Marple is an awesome school district. I went to Worrall elementary and I can safely say I still feel like family there. The Middle school was my least favorite, as the teachers are a bit uptight sometimes. The high school is amazing. There are so many things to get involved in and the school spirit is thriving. I wouldn't trade districts for the world. There are so many great people who devote their time to educating the new generation of workers.
