I'm not overly impressed. My child is happy here. There are lots of activities scheduled. I believe the curriculum could be a lot stronger.

This is a great school, the teacher, principal and parent are involve in their child education. Great friendly school where everybody pretty much know each other. All the children activity are coordinate by parents. My daughter love this school.

Ms. White is a great principal. The PTO is very much involved. I give Loomis 5 STARS. Loomis is a great place to learn. The children look forward in going too school.

I am reall giving 3 12 stars. The principal is an excellent principal, unfortunately there are not many staff members that can follow her lead and the ones that were there have left. There are only a few teachers (that I can count on one hand) that are truly great teachers that can distribute a current an advanced curriculmn for these students. I will commend them on having great fun activities on board that some of your more education oriented schools lack. In the Great School blog you ask if this school is for your child....well I can say from our experience this school is not for everyone and they make sure you know that you are not really welcome and do it with a smile but most of them do it without a smile. Favortism is enforced here. The children do not clique it is the parents and its encouraged

Kindergarten program is exceptional. The teacher is superb with the children and they have fun while keeping a strict schedule. I am very pleased with my first experience with Loomis!

Loomis has great teachers and is very strong in the area of public speaking. Some of the grades loop (keep the same teacher for more than one year) The kids are able to get into the curriculum quicker because the teacher already knows the strengths of each child. Loomis is a fun safe environment to learn. Lots of family activities.

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.
