Unionville-Chadds Ford School District Reviews

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.

Unionville High School is a wonderful high school, with great teachers who love to educate. The academics at UHS are wonderful, with 22 different AP courses and 18 Honors classes. The AP average is 4.34, and there are over 150 AP scholars. The school itself is very clean and has big hallways, classrooms, and other facilities. There is a huge library with extremely friendly librarians, and a cyber cafe to grab a quick bite. What Unionville has is a lack of diversity though, and there is about 14% minority enrolled. UHS has a class size anywhere from 10 to 20 people. U.S. News ranks Unionville as 5th in Pennslyvania.
My children graduated from UCFSD and were very prepared for college. UCFSD has a challenging curriculum and excellent teachers. Teachers have high expectations for students. Should your student need extra help the special education is excellent but plan on paying lot's of tutor fees for your child to keep up with this curriculum. In the end your child will be well prepared for college. Private education at the public level. High income families with high expectations make this an excellent choice.
