West Chester area business leaders recently got a first-hand glimpse into student life at Rustin High School when student leaders and school administrators hosted a breakfast on Wednesday, November 29th.

Superintendent Dr. Jim Scanlon provided an update on student academic achievement touting an increase in average SAT and ACT test scores that are consistently higher than state and national averages. The tests are used to measure college readiness.

Scanlon also talked about ways that the school district and the business community can expand partnerships to continue to prepare students for success once they graduate. The district offers students unique opportunities to learn about the workplace through its Career Exploration Program. Area businesses are a key component of the program and help to make the critical link between the skills students are learning in school and the importance of this knowledge and skill acquisition to future career success.

Rustin High School Principal Dr. Michael Marano spent time talking about the dedication the student body has to the surrounding community. The school has over 40 clubs that focus on community service.

"We have students that are passionate about community service - whether it's supporting childhood cancer research or protecting the environment," said Marano. "To see the impact that our students make in the community is inspiring to us on a daily basis."

Guests were treated to a complimentary breakfast prepared by students in Karen Weaver's Culinary Arts class and were entertained by Rustin's string quartet. The morning concluded with student-led tours of the school.
