I like Upper Darby School district for it diversity. I have been and attended school in this school district since my birth. The township is multicultural hence the school district is diverse and very rich is culture. I like the fact that you feel completely at home which makes you recognize that you really do have a stake in the school district.
The teaches and all administrative staff that I have encountered and interacted with, are extremely nice and helpful. They provided useful guidance towards me making my intended career choice. The school district has great reputation in sports, helping kids to succeed in various sports activities. The Bus system is good as I never had any issues while I was a Bus student.
THIS SCHOOL DISTRICT ROCKS! It has played a significant role in the person that I am today. I will someday like to come back as an Alumni and mentor upcoming students.

This school is a diamond in the rough. At Upper Darby, you meet and interact with people from so many different cultures and backgrounds. I could not imagine graduating from any other district!
Upper Darby is a great school to attend. There is a lot of diversity which gives you the chance to learn about different cultures, it is a cultural melting pot. Its high population and the school's efficiency really gives you a feel of what college is going to be like. The school enables you to take responsibility and learn to solve problems on your own. It also makes the transition into college easier as well due to the large population in Upper Darby.
