I really liked how inclusive it was. There was a lot of focus on being a close and welcoming community. The district also provided many opportunities for the students to help the community and be involved in service. If I could change anything about the district, it would be the fact that there needs to be more addressing about mental health awareness. Also, I would make it so that everyone is given an equal opportunity to express their talents and skills. At many times, I felt like there were students who were not placed in the right math level, and they could do so much better if they were in a higher place. In other words, I think the district would be a lot better if it properly placed students into academic levels that best suited them rather than keeping all the students in one level. Also, the district staff could be a little more diverse. I feel like diversity among the staff allows students to gain more perspective and knowledge about the world.

My son is going into 4th grade at NPE, and I couldn’t be happier with the school, the teachers and the administration. He gets all the support he needs. Not only do they teach students the academics, but they teach them values, kindness, friendship, a sense of community, compassion and how to be a decent human being- things that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. I wouldn’t change this school for anything, looking forward to seeing what middle school and high school have brings.
As a parent and educator, I chose to live in the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District because of its reputation. My son started kindergarten this year, and I can honestly say that I have not disappointed. He has already been provided with an abundance of phenomenal educational opportunities. He has grown academically, socially, and emotionally. I am excited to see what the future in WSSD holds for him!
