Reading School District Reviews
The experience that I have had with the Reading School District was neither the best nor worst. The experience has not been the best since there are very few educators that care about the students' education. A common strategy used among educators would be being able to get through a lesson with the time they have instead of answering questions we may have. Although, the few that do have made this experience a lot more meaningful. These educators will take time out of their day to ask you for any problems you may be having.
My daughter is finishing up her senior year. Coming from the local catholic high school in the area, we have been overwhelmed with the number of resources Reading High offers including college prep courses internships, and sports. It also has the most scholarships in Berks County totaling 20 million dollars. Yes, the school is large therefore you need to support your child and ask questions to take advantage of what they offer and help support your child in standing out from the rest.
There are many teachers that care for the students education. However, it's difficult to learn unless you are in upper level classes, such as, AP or Honors. The culture is amazing, especially in the sports and music department. As long as you get involved in clubs and focus on your studies, you should have a great experience.
