Craibire is right.... The mailing address of Coatesville encompasses a lot more than the actual city of Coatesville, and I highly recommend that you consider the area.

Coatesville Area School District is exactly what Craibire stated ..... what you and your children make of it. My step-daughter graduated from there, made it into a top public University, and now at age 28 graduated from Johns Hopkins with a Masters. Is she talented? Yes, but without a good start at CASH, she wouldn't have been able to make it into such a top tier school.
