Hi everyone,
I am applying for education positions for a few schools right outside Philadelphia and I just wanted some input on what school everyone would recommend. The schools I am applying to are:

Garnet Valley School District (Glen Mills)

Morrisville School District

Chichester School District

William Penn School District


Would you recommend these schools. I saw on previous threads that a lot of people seem to like Glen Mills. Any information you can give me on the areas would be greatly appreciated.

Not William Penn. Pretty close to the bottom of the barrel, kids from less than great parts of Delaware County. You definitely want Garnet Valley, then Chichester, then Morrisville then William Penn, based upon district rankings anyway.

If you are just starting your job search now for a teaching position, I would just apply everywhere. I know many unemployed teachers that have been looking for a permanent position for two years. Good luck!

Yeah...what she said. Looking for any suburban teaching position (even in weak districts) is pretty tough. They still have many more people apply than positions exist.

I'm actually applying for school counseling positions and those schools have positions open. I do realize though that I will probably be one of many applicants applying for those positions. Thanks for the input!
