The academics at Radnor High School are superb! The extracurricular activities such as the music department and the sports teams (which I’m involved in) have also been the highlights of my years there. There are lot of fun traitions like LM week, but the school needs to work on inclusivity and having a more welcoming atmosphere for newcomers. I have some friends that are new that are finding it hard to adjust because people are not that willing to be friendly.

Radnor is an excellent high school with a lot of resources to offer. However, one drawback is that it does not usually allow freshmen to take AP courses. The diversity of this school as also slightly lacking, as is probably the case across the whole school district. Most of the teachers are excellent instructors with a passion for their subject. They also have an excellent music program, which includes music, band, and orchestra. The school also has excellent facilities for its various activities. I have enjoyed my experience at this school and can honestly say that these past four years have been highly enriching.
Overall, my experience at Radnor has been alright, but mostly because I've chosen to make it that way. There are loads of nice people, as is the case anywhere else, but Radnor really does suffer from a toxic achievement culture. It can be very hard to get people involved in anything service- or community- based if they can't see the immediate resume or GPA payoff. We suffer from a purpose problem and loads of misplaced stress as a result of pushing students towards a goal that even they might not be sure of. That said, there are a few shining lights. We have our fair share of amazing teachers who really care, as well as those who couldn't care less. From what I've seen, the only way students really get a great experience out of RHS is by forging their own way-- starting new activities and groups, pushing for change wherever they see fit, attempting to gather and rally people together-- despite any opposition.
