Unionville-Chadds Ford School District Reviews

Unionville High School is a great school. The classes are hard, however, manageable and the school has multiple options for students to pick classes based off how they feel they would do in the class. Most teachers are very easy to learn from and are helpful for all learning styles. However, the administration needs some work. For instance, many activities that students support are either cancelled or rejected just because they do not want it to happen or it's too much work. Also, when dealing with detentions or any disciplinary action they are extremely unreasonable when students try to talk to them about it. The student is trying to explain reasons for something happening and the administration will not listen. Overall, the school has great academics and college readiness but the administration and diversity needs some work.

School board made the superintendent one of Pennsylvania's highest paid employees (to the public's surprise as vote added to agenda & taken after 11 pm at meeting). Teachers' absurdly high grading prevents students from getting into colleges they should.Graduates frequently find college easier than high school. While teachers grind students down, administration provides programs about not over scheduling kids but is silent about abusive work loads and severe grading policies. Classicism/elitist attitudes are a problem as are lack of diversity/inclusion. Administration doesn't understand the difference between diversity/inclusion and bullying. High rates of drug and alcohol use by students.Anxiety is a common problem. Administration contributes to this with a culture of strict rules and little flexibility.All this is ignored because students have exceptionally high test scores.No formal feedback mechanism for students/parents about administrators/teachers.
As a student still enrolled in Unionville-Chadds Ford School District, I love the many different options that Unionville presents for students. Once I discovered the major I wanted to pursue, I was able to select electives that focused on certain topics. While doing this, students and teachers were very helpful throughout the entire process, allowing for a great experience. On top of all this, sports give everyone the chance to participate, and academics are a priority.
