MNHS has an outstanding academics and fantastic extra curricular activities. She is now working for a CBS News in a large Pennsylvania market. I am happy about the education she received in MNHS. It prepared here for the future!
Review Marple Newtown Senior High School
This is my daughter's first year at the high school but she has been in the MN district since Kindergarten and I have been so pleased with the education she has received. The teachers at the high school are top notch. They care about the students and encourage them to be the best they can be. There are different levels of coursework (Honors, AP) that the kids can and do take advantage of, and most of the kids try to do their best, and are supported in all ways by the teachers, the staff and the coaches. I am very impressed with this district, and feel like my daughter is getting the best education she can. The parents in Marple and Newtown townships are very involved in the community and exceptionally good at keeping our schools great. Keep up the great work Marple Newtown!
During the last three years I've spent in the Marple Newtown HS building, I can truly attest to the amazing ability that the staff, students and parents have for making MNHS a wonderful place. Student show pride during annual spirit weeks, peep rallies, and sports games, and the guidance office is always ready to help with any academic help. The teachers can be headstrong with their rules, but it helps students prepare for real world issues such as being on time, organized, and prepared. A amazing education is provided as well as a variety of clubs, sports, and performing and visual arts are also offered to all students. So no student is without an amazing experience to take them through their years.
