this is susannah. for those of you for whom that means NOTHING; I went to Westtown for four years (6th 7th 8th 9th) then last July (late july may I add) the teachers politely 'asked' me to leave. So I suppose I shouldn't exactly be posting here, having never graduated from Westtown, and not attending it now.
BUT. I am seriously starting to worry. Last week I got a letter about westtowns "new image"? And the framed pictures on main hall of students doing their studenty thing? Please don't tell me thats for our student.
I worry that the school caught on to the fact that no one in the outside world (other then quakers) seems to take them seriously. Whenever I mention it people just say "Isn't that a big pot-smokers school?" which of course it is, but thats not the point. I think that maybe they're t rying to change their image as a laid back hippyish school to a stuffy upper main line school, and I've had my share of those.
So I'm joining this community to keep tabs in stuff, and so that if those things do happen, I can feel a bit better, knowing I wouldn't like it there anymore anyway.
