I love the personal attention my children received at State Street. I'm proud to say they are thriving and both honor roll students in the junior high and high school.

Posted June 2, 2006

I love the small school environment that is at this school. My children love their teacher's. I couldn't ask for anything better. When a problem arises it is handled appropriately. The parent's are really involved at this school. They also have alot of fun learning experiences here. They have a music program that is phenomenal.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
