    I attend Boyertown Senior High School and the community is so supportive all of the athletic and academic achievements that we have accomplished. Everyone attends fairs,basketball games, and school meetings because we love being in this community. Football games are always jam packed with a student section cheering for our team, the band gets the fans wild, and the families and fellow teachers cheer for their children on the team. All the teachers here excel in their degrees and go the extra step to make sure that no child is falling behind. It is a small town so the crime rate is very low. It is a small suburban town with many housing developments spread throughout different townships and communities. There is a lot of diversity, my school alone is a mix of Latinos, African Americans, but the majority of the students and staff are white. Many students walk to the high school, but transportation is available in all the elementary schools, junior highs and the high school as well.

    I enjoyed my experience in the school district. It is also close to other towns, so it is easy to go to different places. A change I would make, would be to have more activities to do within the town. When you are looking for something to do at night, you have to go elsewhere to see a movie, play mini golf, play arcade games, etc.

    Boyertown is a very small town. It's a pretty good place to grow up in, but besides being a place to call home, it doesn't have very much to offer.
