WB teachers/principal are excellent. I have three very different children and all of their needs are met. Teachers are excellent. Great leadership and many opportunities for parent involvement.

Staff is not caring or patient with kids on the spectrum. Staff expects all students to act like adults. If you are raising a perfect child then this is the school for you. If your child has a personality & sometimes acts the way children do when excited or nervous then don't send them here. They tend to want perfect children who sit in there chair all day like a robot would do.

I have two children in this school and I have been extremely happy with both the education they have received and the staff. I come from west coast schools and I am very impressed by the programs offered here. I would definitely recommend this school to others.

I am very disappointed with this school. My daughter attended catholic school in the past and we switched to WB for financial reasons. We are switching her back to catholic school. She learned so much more there and the teachers really get to know your child on an individual basis. You don't get that at WB, the teachers come in do their job and that's it. Don't expect the "warm and fuzzy" feeling here.

This school is a well-rounded academic school for all children including gifted (I have one) and special education (I have one of these as well. You may need to pay attention to homework and curriculum; however, I find that with the PSSA push and standardized curriculum in the state of PA they are right on target for teaching in this state. There is a nice push for the music program and athletics is important but not overemphasized. There is a bit of "top heavy" extracurriculars for only the older grades; very few opportunities for K-3. Some arents are quite involved but we have many working parents. People seem to volunteer easily. There was a bit of a fuss over peanuts so don't expect to have treats served in this school at any holiday. One parent had to ruin it for everyone.

Ignore the May 6 post-it's completely inaccurate and is obviously the work of some disgruntled parent.

I have 2 children in this school and I have nothing bad to say about it. My child happens to be in DEEP, and trust me, I did no 'kissing up'. My husband and I were contacted after our child took the OLSAT test in first grade. After further testing it was determined our child was eligible for the DEEP program. I have found nothing but fantastic faculty, staff and parents at West Bradford and a challenging curriculum for the students.

This school is very disorganized and severely lacking in math and science. Be prepared to kiss up because that will be the only way your child will get into DEEP, which apparently is a prerequisite for making an A. This school grades by teacher discretion, not scores. In other words, if your child makes A's on every math test, he still won't make an A if he is not in DEEP. So what is DEEP? Can't seem to get a straight answer. They give a test at the beginning of the year so if you have a student entering third grade, you better start studying fourth grade curriculum over the summer. DEEP is not a gifted program. They do not test for IQ. It is very political. The teachers don't communicate. Unless you are in class with your child you won't know what is going on. Be prepared for problems.
