My kids go to the new 'gordy' school which is now called Benjamin Chambers. It is a brand new school built in 2008. It has up to date everything and the teachers and the principal are so caring and considerate towards the students and the parents. I would highly recommend this school to others

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.
