    I'm a senior at Radnor High School and I couldn't ask for anything more. I don't only get an education that some students dream of but I am surrounded by a clean and caring community making sure their students succeed. Radnor is full of so much life and there is always an event bringing our community together. I have slowly watched alumni graduate from Radnor High School and every single one of them have become successful. This school prepares you for college in ways people don't even realize. I am only in college prep courses but they are the classes I will be taking as a freshman in college. You are only put in slower classes if you do not try. I have struggled too but every teacher cares to make sure you try your hardest. Its ultimately up to the student though.

    I was a new student as a freshman and was amazed at the academic intensity and range of extra curriculars offered at Radnor. The pride and traditions that come with the school are so much fun. I wouldn't trade my experience there for the world

    If your child has any learning needs he/she is simply put into 'support' and forgotten. The school focuses on statistics and any child that doesn't fit the mold gets shoved aside and forgotten.

    Great schools and great community!

    The academic programs (specifically the math program) are challenging; there are an abundance of creative arts programs such as band orchestra and art; and parents are involved at all levels.

    The best thing about the Radnor Twp Schools is the quality of the students which I see as more the product of the community (professional accomplished athletic well-adjusted etc) than the product of the school district per se. My children's experiences in Radnor were that the elementary schools are absolutely fantastic the Middle School was disappointing and that the High School was simultaneously wonderful and horrible depending on the teacher. The High School in particular is geared towards the over-achiever and judging by the number of National Merit Scholars (10 to 15 each year)and the quality of the college acceptances it clearly is meeting the needs of these students. It does a slightly less-successful job however meeting the needs of students who do not fit the overachiever mold.

    I can not say enough good things about Radnor. The educational standards are beyond impressive. The sports consistently compete at a state championship level. The community is wonderful and involved with the school. The students have high ambitions and the school continues to push the envelope for public schools in the entire U.S. Living in Radnor School District is an overall excellent experience for any family.

    I was recently graduated from Radnor High School and I could not be more grateful to have had the opportunity to attend this school. Radnor has so many unique programs from which all students benefit. It is an academically superb school and has excellent athletics as well. In my experience my teachers truly cared about their subjects and were excited to share their knowledge with others. As for the social aspect of the school there is a group of friends for everyone. Some students aren't as kind as others but you get that almost anywhere when you put 1000 teenagers in one building. I loved Radnor.

    I am not a parenet I am a student. As a student I love radnor it is a great place to learn. We have alot of freedom and great relationships with the people here. The staff is always avalible. Some students can be 'clicky' but most are open and great people. I think Radnor is a wonderful place to grow up and a very good school district.

    A strong social caste system prevails at Radnor based solely on the clothes you wear and the car you drive. Academically Radnor stresses extrinsic rewards over the intrinsic values of education. If you are considering Radnor School District as a place to settle your family....don't. Move to Tredyffrin-Easttown.
