We love this school! The teachers, staff, and principal are all caring, supportive, and willing to help in any way they can! We wouldn't have our children go any other place!
—Submitted by a parent

As a retired teacher, I now volunteer at Friendship. The staff continues to be hardworking, insightful, and dedicated to bringing out the best in their students - academically, socially, and emotionally. It is a pleasure to see classrooms where students and teachers are enthusiastically engaged in different styles of learning. I've seen whole group, small group, and individual instruction being conducted. I've heard dynamic discussions, seen group projects being implemented, and witnessed all kinds of learning activities using computers, whiteboards, and Elmos, to name of few of the tools that are used on a daily basis. Friendship maintains a positive approach to learning and is a wonderful place for students.

I am very satisfied with the education that my son is receiving at Friendship Elementary School. Although the physical facilities are not exactly state of the art, that is more than made up for by the teachers and administration of the school.

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.
