School Records

For most of the nineteenth century until the present day, school records were maintained by the individual schools and later school districts. The Chester County Archives holds few records pertaining to schools. Please see below for a link to what is available. Other records not maintained by the Archives MAY be found with the original school district or at the Chester County Historical Society Library which has a limited collection of original school records.
