• The mission of the Downingtown Area School District, proud of our tradition of excellence, is to educate all students to meet the challenges of a global society by providing an individually responsive learning environment characterized by outstanding academic and personal achievements in partnership with family, students, and community.


  • For our future, we want our students to be career and/or college ready upon graduation. In order to be prepared for this challenge, our students will:

    • Be self-directed, reflective learners who use data to foster learning and growth;
    • Exhibit critical thinking and problem solving skills;
    • Utilize technology in an appropriate manner to maximize learning;
    • Act in a respectable manner as responsible, contributing citizens of the local, national and global society;
    • Be innovators who use a wide range of techniques to elaborate, refine, analyze, and evaluate their own ideas in order to improve and make the best use of their creative efforts;
    • Collaborate with peers and communicate efficiently and effectively across a variety of situations and environments;
    • Be conscientious and informed consumers, who are fiscally aware of and responsive to current economic situations;
    • Demonstrate an appreciation of an economically and culturally diverse community.
