    "I would have given it 5 stars, but while the English, Social Studies, Languages and Math Departments are doing a great job the Science Department has been a huge disappointment. For six years now my kids have been taking science classes at the high school and the teachers are mostly professionals who moved from the lab to the classroom. Unfortunately they don't know how to teach to the middle. They teach for perhaps the brightest kids, or perhaps for pleasure of the sound of their own voices, but apart from the Chemistry Classes none of my kids -- who do very well in other subjects -- have felt like they understood or liked their science classes. Earth Science, Biology, Physics.... it's all been a wash-out, and the PSSA test scores demonstrate the short comings of the teaching in this area. I have seen no progress or even awareness that there is a problem with the science department, but I feel like our kids have not been well served. Apart from that, this has been a great high school for my kids. There's lots of parent involvement, lots of care and enthusiasm from teachers and staff. There's an atmosphere of mutual care and respect all around, a very good thing."

    "Perkiomen Valley School District prepared me well for post high school life. I went to numerous elementary schools before ending at South and I loved it."

    "Very happy with elementary and middle school experience. High school has fallen flat. Homework is assigned over the weekends and impacts family time in a negative way. Not as much support for the arts as in lower grades. Teachers and administrators are consumed with standard test results and this overshadows individuality."
