    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Marple Newtown SD

    Pros

    Mostly suburban mid to upper class kids. Good community.

    Cons

    They switched to a different sort of schedule, with days assigned by letters and blocks, and it's really made for some problems in the curriculum. Corruption and nepotism issues exist in EVERY budget. It costs the kids art programs, music programs, resources... the current leadership is interested in sports and only sports, and fudges whatever numbers it needs to to make that happen. They also refuse to promote or... hire without "knowing" someone on the inside.
