Our District

  • The Chester Upland School District (CUSD) is a mid-sized, urban public school district serving the City of Chester, the Borough of Upland and Chester Township in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Within the approximately six square miles that encompass the district, CUSD operates a high school (on two campuses), two intermediate schools and four elementary schools, serving 2,641 students.

It is situated on the Delaware River, between the cities of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Wilmington, Delaware.  The district is an hour’s drive from the Jersey Shore and Delaware Beaches. It is a two-hour drive from the Pocono Mountains and New York City.

    By proactively leveraging resources within and outside of the Chester Upland School District, we have established a quality school system that is responsive and accountable; an inclusive environment where all have access to learning and where students are both physically and emotionally safe; high expectations for student achievement and teacher performance; a rigorous, relevant, and integrated curricula that engages all students in learning around real-world experiences; and positive partnerships through collaboration between staff and students, families and other community members.
