    "OK this school is better than many public schools; but fell very short of our expectations when you consider the tax base they have to work with. We moved from Tredyffrin and it was much much better. First the principal cared at Tredyffrin, at Radnor she is far more focused on how she looks than helping children and she is downright rude to parents and children. Second the teachers at Tredyffrin are given the power to really helps kids; at Radnor they appear afraid of upsetting the administration and principal. They can help kids who fall behind but the teacher that is dedicated to helping kids with reading problems is just plain mean. Is that really what child who is struggling needs to put up with. I putting my children in private schools (benchmark and baldwin) and they did much better. Beware before you move to this district."

    "The school does not protect children from bullying and stresses academics above citizenship and behavior. While the academics are strong the level of homework is far beyond other districts such as Tredyffrin where we moved from. If a child needs extra help, you will not find it here. They have programs but they are mostly ineffectual. There are some studies that indicate increased homework does not improve education, however this school appears to be unaware of this data and sends home sometimes as much as 8 pages in 2nd grade. The teachers are good; but trapped with poor administration making them less effectual. The principal for Radnor not a nice person; If you have an issue she will sweep it under the rug if she thinks she can."

    "Before enrolling in 3rd grade, my daughter was going to a private school and we were concerned with public school. The teachers including the principal are very engaged with student and parents. During the year I attended two parent and teacher meetings and am very happy with their care. School has great playground and top facilities unlike the private school she went to."

    "This is a very nice school. The facilities are top-notch and the teachers engaging and kind. We were happy there and disappointed to leave for a move. Our biggest concern was the lack of diversity at the school both ethnically and socio-economically."
