Tamaqua Area Senior High School

Senior: This is the only school I've gone to, as is the case for most students here, so I can't answer relative to other schools very well. However, in my four years at this high school, I felt I was able to utilize the tools available. Many of my teachers became friends, creating a better atmosphere for learning because we, as a class, weren't afraid to speak our minds. Administration has gone through a lot of change in my years, but it seems this change is for the better. The activities and traditions allow for school spirit, and there is an array of after-school activities. I know I, personally, along with other students felt like we never even left the school after hours (and we didn't! But out of our own free will.) The school has an excellent drama club and sports teams. There are some downfalls, such as the lack of a library and poor technology resources, but considering the funding the school is provided, it's not a surprise.

Parent: I have 2 children at Community Day School. I've been a parent there for 4 years. Our experience has been stellar. My children are academically challenged in a nurturing setting. My daughter once articulated to me that one reason she enjoys school is because she gets to use her imagination there. I was so thrilled to hear that she can tap into her imagination in a rigorous academic setting! My son struggles more socially and emotionally. CDS has been a wonderful partner to us with this. CDS's smaller class sizes, caring teachers, engaged administration, and the growth mindset philosophy have led our son to many successes. My husband and I feel a huge amount of gratitude to CDS for all this and more that it offers our children. We also feel a great deal of trust in the CDS administration based on what we've seen in its ability to curate curriculum, experiences, and community. At CDS, we feel we have a strong partner in raising our children to become adults we are proud of.
