    "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."

    "The guidance department at Bayard Rustin is full of ignorant and spineless employees. Students are forced to stay in class levels that are a bad match for them, because guidance knows how to do nothing but "follow the policies". The administration will take the effort to pull students away from classes for violating dresscode with a rip in their jeans but will not take the effort to help students create a personalized and rigorous but not overwhelming schedule. Many of the teachers are intelligent, fair, and accessible, but there are few who play favorites and boost or lower grades depending on personal relations with a student. The level of difficultly and work is not consistent within a course level, and your child may find that they are recieving credit for doing much more work than a student who is taking the same course with a different teacher."

    "We just moved here this 2009 school year my son is a sophmore. I find the staff and teachers are very professional. The teachers work with parents to keep children on task. All departments have been outstanding, I have no complaints at this time. The sports dept is outstanding as well. I feel like we belong here. My son feels the same way.. We are military and move often, so this is very important to us."
