Everyone at West Chester is so welcoming and caring. The professors here really work hard and want to see you succeed. The campus is beautiful, as soon as you get here, you'll feel like your home! The one thing I would like to see change is all the construction that is going on throughout the semester.

West Chester Area School District (WCASD) is great overall. I grew up in this district and went through all their schools from kindergarten to high school. It is in a wonderful area that isn't very secluded, which is great because there is always something to do and places do go. This can include field trips as well! All of the district is stocked with the best teachers around, always friendly, hard working, and great work ethics. There is no other place that I would want to send my child to school. They have great programs, teachers, and a great location, how much better could it get?
My experience at East High School was average. There were no outstanding moments apart of school culture and activities that made my experience above average. I started in public school my freshman year of high school so it was a big change of environment and pace. People were friendly and kind, and I participated in many after school activities. Aside from typical high school experiences there were a couple of safety incidents that made many students feel unsafe at school but our administrators handled the situations very well.
