Conestoga Senior High School9

Berwyn, PA | Chester County

January 15, 2013


Our son has been attending Conestoga since his freshman year. We have always been thrilled with their quality, but in the last two years have been even more thrilled with their support. After a traumatic brain injury that affected his concentration ability (and made him suicidal), the school has supported him throughout the challenges. He has been two years ahead in math since 6th grade, and they challenge him while at the same time supporting him and helping him study. The compassion is unmatched, and while his grades slipped some since the injury, they have helped him keep them respectable -- to the point that he earned an academic scholarship at his chosen university. Anyone in our district who sends their child to a private school is throwing away money. Also, their music program is outstanding -- whoever complained that they need outside lessons, well, for a kid who wants to be a professional musician, yes, that's necessary -- as it would be for any school! It's not a music school! But the quality of student performances is very high, and they consistently have many students in district chorus and higher. First rate school.

I attended Conestoga my sophomore through senior years. Yes, this school offers more AP classes, foreign languages, and after school clubs than just about any school out there, but this all comes at a price. The quality of teaching in the honors and AP classes is very poor. The teachers do not necessarily teach the subject, but teach you the test to pass the subject. I am someone who genuinely enjoys learning and this school puts so much pressure on test scores and good colleges that is takes the enjoyment out of learning. The music program is the same way. Due to all of the students signing up for music classes so that they look desirable to colleges, the quality of the music programs is horrendous. Most of the students in the class do not invest themselves into the classes whatsoever. The students that are at all serious about music must take outside lessons in order to better themselves. My previous school had a fantastic Spanish program, and I believe I learned more from my old school in one year than I learned in all three years at Conestoga. This school may look like a great school on paper, but it certainly disappointed me!

We had 3 children attend Conestoga- and 3 diffrent earners. It was exceptional for all 3. Most telling was our youngest- an average student who attended a top 10 university on an athletic scholarship. I a class where 90% were in the top 10% of their high school class, he handles the academics of this premier institution with no problem.

We have three daughters who attended Conestoga, and couldnt be happier with the staff, the community, and the resources and opportunities available to students in the T/E district generally and Conestoga in particular. It is a college prep school in every sense.

I believe the school has everything to offer a student to be teh best they can be. One must understand that every school will have some predjudice / drugs / etc. It is up to the parents first and foremost to provide a safe and loving home environment then hope and pray your child has the backbone to say no.

Although they attemped to get rid of the music department I would have to say that it has one of the most student involvment i have ever seen. Parents are very involved with students and their activities. If there is something needed parents will figure it out and get it started. Overall academics are amazing. Student learn in a most advanced high tech and up to date environment.

I agree that the school is extremely competitive, but the competition has prepared me for college. The teachers are excellent and the school is beautiful. There are two courtyards where students can relax, eat lunch and if we were lucky, sometimes even have class on a nice spring day. This is a very rich school, which means that students have the best of everything - including the academic advantage. It is one of the most technologically advanced schools in the country. The students are all very different but the majority of the school is 'preppy.' Most wear designer clothing and accessories. (jcrew, abercrombie, tiffany's, coach) Students are encouraged to participate in activities. If they do not find a club that suits them, they can easily form their own. There is so much more i could say, but I only have 150 words. From a student's perspective, there is no better.
