  • West Chester Area School District's mission statement demonstrates the districts belief that all children can learn. It is not uncommon for students to require additional supportive services on the road to learning, growing, socializing and becoming contributing members of their society. The Department of Pupil Services of the West Chester Area School District is dedicated to providing all students with what they need to achieve their personal best. Student services are proactive in its philosophy in meeting the needs of students. Counselors, Psychologists, Nurses, Social Workers, and Caseworkers provide a network of highly trained professionals to counsel youngsters and their family, connect children and caregivers to programs and services, assess levels of learning, support the physical and mental health of youngsters, and provide training for staff throughout the district to better interact to benefit children and their families.

    In some cases, a student with a disability may require special Education in order to benefit from their educational experience. West Chester Area School District currently educates approximately 1500 Special Education students in a full continuum of services offered in its sixteen schools as well as with a combination of Chester County Intermediate Unit, Approved Private Schools, and private school placements.
