I was extremly excited to have 2 of my four children attend Conwell. However after they have spent a total of 3 years in the school I regret to say it is sad that they allow lower leveled students and discipline problem children attend the school. After all some parents do care weather or not there children are safe and learning above their expectations.
This is my daughters first year at conwell. I couldn't be happier with her grades. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in my child.
I feel as though this public school is biased in that children who are on the honor roll receive more attention and accommodations than the children with average grades or children who are struggling to get by. It seems it should the other way around. On the other hand, the school itself and the curriculum is great.
So far I am not impressed by the School my son went from an A student to a C/D student. The teachers have not been helpful. Hopefully things will get better this year or I will be relocating him to a school that can make classes more interesting. I have sat in on these classes and could have done a better job there was no enthusiasm and excitement at all.
Enrolling me in Conwell is the best decision my Mother could have ever made. I excelled as a student at Conwell and the staff could not have prepared me for high school any better. The small but impressive language department gave me a great advantange over the Sophmores as a Freshman when I entered Spanish 2 in high school. I love this school and wish to return very soon for a visit.
I think Conwell is the best school my son could of attended for middle school the teachers in annex section 53 are the best I've seen in a long time. I am happy with my choice for my son. Keep up the good work.
My daughter is now in 7th grade started attending in 5th grade. Is a better school than most but could and should be so much better, at enforcing discipline codes, and hold teachers to a higher standard.
I had to decide where I wanted to send my daughter to middle school and Conwell rank with one of the best middle schools in Philadelphia. Even though my daughter has to travel an hour and ten minutes on transportation, it worth it. I wanted her to be challeged academically and Conwell is doing just that.
I have one child in conwell and one child graduated. I love the education that they provide which seems to be at a higher level than most middle schools in the region. The combination of both parents and teacher involvement is what makes this school succeed!
Heads up for a great school Several of my children attended Conwell, and to my greatest of happy moments ::: one of my grandchildren is attending now. Teachers are great, no nonsense type. Learning interests are kept very high, and requires challenge. Music department is wonderful, every opportunity given in all departments. Choir director is exceptional. From a parent/grandparent who thinks Conwell is the GREATEST
