    "I'll admit I didn't always love this school when I was a student but as I've grown older and graduated college this school is by far one of the bests. In college as far as Math and Writing came I honestly could not believe that other high schools had such low standards. Even as far as writing a lab report was a challenge in college for other students where Downingtown had already taught me the basics. The class choices this school offers are top notch. Many other high schools cannot offer half of what West has and with STEM now open the opportunities seem endless. This school (and district) will challenge you but you will be prepared for college. Many students fail to realize just how limiting other schools are and the opportunities Downingtown gives, take advantage of them."

    "This is a really quality school in a really quality district. The best in Chester County now. Work in another "top district" in ChesCo, but moved my family to Downingtown when it came time to educate my OWN children. Excellent everything."

    "Amazing school in so many ways. I personally went to a very expensive and elite private school, yet I have no doubt that my children (at West and at STEM) are receiving an education that is superior to my own. I know that moving into this District when my children were young was one of the greatest gifts we were able to give them. Thank you to DASD!"

    "My two daughters graduated in 2005 & 2006. They were very successful students (Honors, AP GPA's of 4.25 & 3.8 etc..) They were both good students on their own, but I believe the Faculty & Administration at DWHS was a great factor in their success. I found them to be supportive & caring. Students were treated with resprct, but who also expected to be respectful. The Musci, Arts & English Departments were the best. I think the language department could use a little improvement."

    "There are high standards. The students have to work at it, but if they ask for help when its needed, they will do absoultly fine. The school proggrams are excellent from swimming to band to special needs."
