    "Our school is ranked 21st in the state on schooldiggers.com based on the most recent Keystone exams. That is above Radnor, Conestoga and Great Valley. Only more good to come. With 60 million in renovations, a new Principal and great school spirit, my Freshman son has had only a great experience! Go Tigers!"

    "Marple Newtown has potential to be a great school, but only if a student really searches for it to be so. Last year, I worked in spite of an oppressive administration, but this year, after being more friendly overall around school, I've realized that a lot of the staff is really willing to help me with my goals. Sure, every school has some bad teachers, and if they could just be fired like that everything would be easy- but that's not the case. The student body is disappointing at best, with a majority of underachievers. A few bright stars shine through though and really benefit from the resources the school has to offer. Don't take honors chemistry. Only advice when it comes to classes."

    "I am a Marple Newtown HS alumni that couldn't wait to get my kids back into my old neighborhood and into the school I was so proud of. This was the Biggest Mistake Ever!!. During the freshman night along with parents, the Principal and Vice Principal welcomed the students and the parents with a new change in attendance policy that sounded more like a threat than anything, very disrespectful to the parents. It appeared as if parents have no rights in this matter and the majority of parents I spoke with were very offended. Later that week I learned that over 10 parents withdrew their children from the Marple Newtown Senior High School, I am planning to do the same after hearing frightening stories from many families and how they were treated by the staff and administration when a problem occurred either with a teacher or a bully. I also found that approx 45% of the students in this district do not attend Marple Newtown, Hmm... I wonder Why?"

    "This school is awful. Suppressing talent and potential at every turn, this school works to depress and squelch any excitement the students could have toward learning. The teachers inadequacy is only bolstered by the administrations appalling aversion to work in any form. Switching out of this penitentiary is the best decision I have ever made."
