THIS SCHOOL is horrbile. all we do is goof around in class and we never learn anything. the library is horrible with alll old books. we need to start fixing this problem before it falls apart. there is so much profanity and bullying its hard to leave school without a black eye or a wedgy. and so many people are found with drugs and weapons everyday. its really a scary place. this would be a horrible place to send your child. god, please save us.

This school, has very poor administration and security. There is so much vulgar and profanity and your in a very negative enviorment. Parents, this a very poor school and I would advise you to think about another school.

Over crowed, with too narrow hallways. Principals should think of how hard it is to get along with other students with too much over crowding. First think about the saftey of us. We almost had a unthinkable incadent happend in the school year of 2005-2006. Listen to the students!

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.
