    "To the previous poster, how can you complain about the counselors but then say that your kids got into great schools? At some point they must have received some "guidance" in that department or else they would not have made it that far. My interactions with them have always been pleasant & helpful and I work in the community so I don't even have a child there now. I see Rustin as a great example of combining academics, arts, athletics, and community support. Great staff from top to bottom along with outstanding parent involvement makes Rustin one of the top high schools in PA. Very proud to be a partner with the WCASD!"

    "I am the parent of 2 students that graduated in "08 and '11 and I have a senior graduating in a couple of weeks. All 3 of my kids have gone onto (or going onto) great colleges due to the hard work that they accomplished but also the great teachers, coaches and mentors Rustin has afforded my kids. I could not have been happier with the education recevied at Rustin. My one small complaint is (as the previous comment mentioned) the counselors. In terms of helping to direct the kids they were not helpful at all, everything "gone over" in their senior meeting with them only confirmed what they already knew, it was not a true consultation of what they can now do with the success they had achieved. It didn't take long to realize that we would get no direction as to finding a good fit for college, that was all us. But due to the wonderful experience at Rustin as a whole I believe they have been given the tools to succeed at college."

    "I am a student at Rustin and think it is a great school. There is a minuscule amount of bullying and all of the teachers seem to actually care about their students. The music and art section of the school is great and so are the sports. The only complaint about the school that I have are the counselors. They seem to not care at all or they just simply don't know what their doing. It takes forever to get courses changed. The only college help they give you is pointing you to a single website that has a database of colleges. Other than that, like I said before, the school is amazing"

    "A relatively new High School in a great area. Students generally come from a sound stable economic back ground with a very supportive family structure. The facilities are outstanding. Science, Math and English curriculums are leveled to challenge the most gifted down to grade level. Extra Curricular activities from the Arts to Sports are top shelf. Our oldest daughter excelled and was coveted by numerous top Universities.....Our son has some additional needs and has been given the additional services and support as needed."

    "I am the parent of a Rustin graduate and a Rustin junior. I have been pleased with the education that Rustin has provided to my kids. They each found quality programs and teachers who could inspire them. The course work is challenging. Many of the teachers seem to care. The facilities (athletic, auditorium, grounds), are amazing (except for the lack of stadium lights). Whether its the championship sports programs, music programs or theater and other programs, I believe most kids have a chance to make a great high school experience at Rustin - and it's free if you pay West Chester Area School District taxes."
