Thanks PA teacher.

That sounds good too. However, I have no knowledge on southern
Chester County or Cecil Public School district in Maryland. Can
you give me a "heads up" or a link to where I can start my
search for info? If not, I'll start asking around and try to ...See More

Hi Gwen,

Southern Chester County is definitely NOT like the city of
Chester. Here is a website that has links to all the school
districts in Chester County:

The ones I would say that are definitely within commuting
