This district has provided me with great education, support, and opportunities. Class is engaging and people are treated with respect. The WCASD always searches for room to improve and provide students with a balance of work and fun. They have done an amazing job taking care of their students and giving them the tools they need to take their next steps into the future.

I have had experience with West Chester Area School District from kindergarten all the way thru to graduation. I was very happy with all levels regarding the children’s growth and understanding. We were in the Glen Acres, Fugett to East Feeder. I felt that all of the teachers were truly wonderful.......
The West Chester Area School District is a great school system for children of all ages. It is well balanced and does well to favor a well rounded student over a good sports player. Advocation for different clubs and activities, as well as an environment that is inclusive of all students, West Chester Area School District is one of the best in PA.
