MNSD is a great place to work! I feel that everyone is truly in it for the right reasons! It is all about the kids in MNSD. I love working in a place that puts the emphasis on the kids. I also feel the School board and administration are doing everything and anything they can to support the kids, staff, community during such a difficult time that we are all living through. Kudos to MNSD!

My family has had a fabulous experience in the Marple Newtown School District. I had five children go through the district and we loved every school from elementary, middle school and the high school. We love the community feel of the district and how everyone will come together to help other families who may be struggling. The sports programs are competitive with great coaching staff who all seem to have the athletes best interest in mind. The guidance counselors we’re so in tune and helpful to my children as they applied to college. There isn’t anything I would change about the experience we have had in the Marple Newtown School district.
I go to Marple and academic wise, the school is good. But with diversity, sports, etc. it doesn’t do well. Marple priorities sports far too much then they should and their music and arts are clearly lacking. Diversity at Marple sucks as well. There is little to no diversity and the students are very racist and homophobic for no reason. The school does absolutely nothing to protect their POC students and LGBTQ+ students when they are being bullied, harassed, and/or called harmful slurs. The only reason you should send your child to Marple is if you want them to have a pretty good education and participation in sports, but besides that, Marple is a horrible school district.
