My daughter attended and got lice 5 times. She was required to be checked by the nurse before she could return, we always did that yet she still got lice, so either other children did not follow the policy or we were just unlucky. But at that point the school should have sent home letters warning parents of this, they did not. Her bus driver screamed at the kids to, "sit down and shut up", on a daily basis. And the curriculum was so rushed my daughter didn't know basic things for her grade level. This school is a huge disappointment.

I Love Westbrook park I think it is a great school. I also think if the new prinipal takes away all the things she plans to she is going to have a lot of upset children and parents. It's one thing to help fix the school but to take away parades and colorday come on now

I am very happy overall with the school. The teachers are great. Mrs. Abel was a wonderful teacher/Resource person. In her new role as lead teacher the school administration may get even stronger. I feel Westbrook Park has prepared children to go on to middle school. Out of the elementary schools in the district I believe it is one of the better ones.

Just an average school - nothing bad, nothing exceptionally good to say. There are several excellent teachers and the principal is also a great person. Though children are just children - many of them simply prefer their PlayStation III to books. Everyone can see the results...

I am very proud to be part od the Westbrook Park Elem.Community. I am impressed how well the teachers know their students both socially and academically.The only thing I wish is that the new behavior policy was more of a positive thing.Mr. Wilson has done great things for this school

Mr. Wilson is a wonderful principal. He takes the time to walk around the school and stop by in the classrooms. My daughter has reported him helping her with her math numerous times. The teachers are great. The ESL program and learning support are wonderful. I love the small group reading lessons (RTI) that meet students' unique needs. As a teacher myself, this school meets my high expectations for my daughter.

The teachers and principal have high evpectations of the students. Power Hour allows students to get instruction based on their individual needs. My children have thrived both academically and socially.

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 goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
