Reading School District Reviews

I attended the Reading School District starting in the fourth grade. As a young student, I realized that I was learning the same thing I had learned in earlier years from the other schools I had attended. I soon came to realize that the way they taught in the Reading School District was very slow paced. As I grew older and went through middle school and high school, the problem remained the same. Many of the teachers don't really care, and don't challenge the students. I definitely was not prepared for college after graduation.

The Reading School District is a very colorful and accommodating school district. They provide many opportunities and clubs that cater to the interests and needs of all students and parents. The district is highly diverse culturally and has allowed me to connect, learn about, and appreciate different cultures. The staff is overall supportive and helps students get to where they need to be to achieve greatness outside of the school setting.
My experience i the Reading School District was not the best, I transferred from a high school in Florida and here in Reading they were not teaching the same classes offered in Florida. Also i was not able to take college ready course for math because they said just because I took all math classes in Florida and although i got good grades n all of them they said they do not know if i am cut out to get into a ap math class. As well my sisters and i did not get every single credit we had earn in Florida and they were all the transcript and they still did not give them to us. Therefore, the School district needs to improve on how they work and put more effort on helping them.
