Strath Haven Middle School 5

I had one daughter go through the Wallingford Swarthmmore School district and she is now a 2nd year college student. I also have a middle school-er. We have been generally pleased with the district and level of education as a whole. I feel that great school are a product of a great neighborhood and parents who are engaged in their child's learning. My second child is having a completely different time in SHMS than the first child. the new school building is wonderful but school renovations or lack there of had no bearing on the great education the kids received years ago, it is really great teachers and a wonderful community that makes great schools. So glad we live here and are a part of the WSSD community

I am so pleased withthe education that my daughter is getting at SHMS. The classes are diverse, and I really feel taht she is being challenged in many different ways by the curiculum. The music and foreign language programs are great. The extracurriculars are amazing and really allow the chidlren to explore different options of what they might like to pursue. Amazing school. I recommend.

im in the middle of moving out of state and will not be returning to Strath Haven which will be a shame concidering that Strath Haven isthe best thing thats happened to me.the 6th grade teachers do there best to make you exell in all you do. they encourage you to move forward and not give up. The dean and principal are amazing at there job. As for the students, they are welcoming, and like i did, students will make friends that will last forever. no one fells left out. and if you do, a teacherwill take help if you ask. in the year of 6th grade, i have excelled to advanced math and reading when i was origiallly in normal. i wish that I could stay another year to see what that tastes like. written by a sixth grader.

This school is great, if you are a new student you get to have new student breakfasts, (that get you out of class), and make you feel more welcome. The 6th grade dean and principal are nice and always there to help you. This school has done nothing short of great for me as a student.

I love the school. The help for LD children is superb, the teachers are excellent and compassionate, and we are kept constantly informed about our child's progress/problems. My child went to Benchmark before, and I must say I am sorry I did not send her to public school much earlier.

Some teachers are great Flawed math program is a big negative. There have been many discipline problems at the school but a new principal is starting for 2007/08. Lots of activities for the kids.
