I found the Exeter area a difficult nut to crack. Coming from out of state, Pennsylvania people are very guarded and do not seem very friendly at first. This made for a very difficult transition into the schools here. There was no effort on the schools part to help integrate a new student. Also, be aware that there are two gunclubs nearby as well as several landfill sites that compromise quality of life in the area, adding to noise, water and air pollution.

Fantastic school! The teachers take the time necessary to make sure the kids are learning and are happy. We considered this school district and Daniel Boone - we're very happy with our decision to move into this school district!

As a past student, I believe this junior high deserves a lot more credit than it is given. It is one of the best in PA, and the teachers are unique and caring towards every student.

I was shocked to find our 'testing scores' so low in comparison to the surrounding suburban districts. Perhaps one of the reasons may be the teaching/administrative staff's interpretation of 'enriched classes'; it doesn't mean MORE work, it means a better quality of work and new teaching methods. If there was more emphasis on education, and less on the dress code, maybe we would see a difference. ALL the kids are important and need to be supported and enriched, not just the catered 'gifted' students. Obviously, the Gold and Silver Eagle club,(honor roll) isn't skewing the scores high enough to cover for this school's lack of a quality teaching standard. If 50% of the kids fail a test, that doesn't mean 50% of the kids are not bright enough, it means the teacher failed to teach 50% of the kids...in my book, that is a failing grade overall. You can put up all the new buildings you want, but if we don't do something better with our learning curve, we are in trouble in this district.
