Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

This school has excellent computer, physical education, music, and library program. In addition to that, the other subjects seem more advanced than the public school system in Bensalem. The only exception is the math program. It seems about a year behind other schools. Overall, the teachers are great and you can't beat all the extra activities this school offers.

The math program is very weak. When my [child] went to high school she needed to be tutored her freshman year on basics that were not enforced in grade school.

I think this is a great school. I have two children there right now. My son was having difficulties when he first started but now I see a lot of improvement. My daughter is doing very well as well. Clearly there is a minor concern with the class sizes, but the cildren seem to do fine. There is a serious lack of extracurricular activities, which can create a financial burden on parents if they have to seek activities for their children outside the school after paying tuition. Also sometimes I feel some of the senior officials are not very responsive. All the same, parental involvement is great, the teachers do their very best and the children seem very happy and very well mannered. Great school!
