Haverford Senior High School Reviews

Overall a pretty positive experience! No school will ever be perfect but I have definitely had more positive experiences rather than negative ones, and it really has made the person I am today. From the teachers I have grown close to, the friends I have made, the classes I have learned to love, the classes I have pushed through even though they may have been difficult or not interesting, and the abundant amount of activities I have gotten myself involved in, I have such great things to say about the school I am sad to be leaving in June. When things have been rough, all of the students work together to keep on making it a fantastic place and I would not have ever wished to go anywhere else for my 4 years of high school.
Review Haverford Senior High School
Haverford is a great high school with a wonderful arts program. Our AP Art classes are well-funded and set students up very well for college. Not to mention, the arts are well-funded (we rarely run out of materials, but if we do, the district simply orders more!), and the portfolio of student work that comes out of the class is wonderful.

The rest of the classes are also very informative, except for the occasional teacher or two who doesn't quite do their job, for one reason or another. The students are friendly, and not particularly "clique-y", but the overall social life is pretty average. I haven't seen any bullying either; we don't have that problem here.
Nothing to change, hasn't changed, since they're good at everything! Always have loved my teachers, tons of clubs to choose from, and time flies because you're busy with something to do.
