    "I look at the 7 rating and think......how can the rating drop so significantly from elementary to middle to high school? The truth is this is a great high school. AP classes that actually prepare students for the AP Exams. A wonderful music program that is supported by the community. I have five children in the district and couldn't be more pleased."

    "I am a former student who graduated two and a half years ago. HHS is a pretty good school, though not the best and certainly not the worst. There are a wide variety of activities, such as music, sports, and many clubs of all different interests. Some teachers are outstanding, others are okay, and some seem like they're just there to get a paycheck. There are all different types of electives which encourage the students to explore many different areas. In my opinion, the honors level students are given more attention than the average students. I had an IEP, and honestly, there were times when I felt like I was spoon-fed and not challenged enough. I thought the guidance counselors were very informative and helpful. Administration did little outside of discipline. Our class did wonderfully on the PSSA, which shows that HHS is indeed a good school. Many average students end up going to DCCC, which is not a bad thing, but shows that they do not receive the same encouragement and attention as the honors students. Overall I am happy with my experience at HHS, I just wish there were a few small changes with students who are not honors level. A good middle class suburban high school."

    "I have 4 children in Haverford's School District, each with varying degrees of academic ability. All schools, ranging from elementary to high school have challenging academic programs and are appropriate to our child's needs. This is an excellent district, administered by educators who have a vested interest in our community."

    "Speaking as the parent of a former student, while there are some excellent teachers and challenging courses, there is a huge blind spot in the commitment to counseling. They have far fewer than the surrounding schools with which they compare themselves. Thus, for instance, higher performing students are not advised of the need to take AP courses in 10th and 11th Grade in order to be considered by selective schools (note: 12th Grade courses do not matter when transcripts are required by January 1st). Counselors only have time for problems and paperwork. Net result - embarrassing few students get to the Ivies or equivalents. If you have a bright student in 9th grade, get some outside help."

    "I am a parent of three HHS students. Overall, the school has a great academic program and is preparing my kids well for college. All three know what's required of them and take ownership of their work. I have recommended the HHS to friends and colleagues and they're happy I made the recommendation."
