  • I went to Malvern schools for all 13 years! All of the faculty and staff were always extremely helpful. I ended up with scholarships and I am doing very well in college. Most people who spoke badly of Malvern did not try to have their problems resolved. Most problems were easily resolved with a mature conversation with the principal. All of the administration were always so ready to help me! The teachers were always very easily accessed, also. A lot stayed after school for tutoring and would help you anytime. I loved Malvern, and I hope to send my children there some day! Teachers were always easier on homework when they knew that a lot of students would be involved in a school activity that night. The sports teams always did really well and most went to the state tournament! The Quiz Bowl team even won state! Aside from sports, Malvern has a lot of other special clubs. Almost any club you could want to belong to, they have it! They are trying to get the taxes to build a new building, because the buildings really need to be updated. Overall, Malvern is a wonderful school!
