I think this school does great, the PTA is awesome,the teachers are really engaged, the principal really listens to your needs, I live in Glenmoore could have sent my kids anywhere, I choose public school. I know some of the students come from rough backgrounds , we have to teach our children to rise above where people come from and not to judge, treat everyone as they treat you. I really do not know if it's behind in curriculum, I feel if your children are so smart they will stand out wherever they go to school.

This school is mediocre at best. They do have a wonderful MG teacher who seems to really know her students. Unfortunately that is only one program. When my daughter went here she did exceptionally well. As a matter of fact on her final report card in 3rd grade she had a 98 average. When we moved into another school district (rated 9 in your system) she was behind in math and needed to get a tutor. In math she actually had a 100 average at Reeceville. Of course, I was not surprised. I used to feel if I saw another addition and subtraction paper come home I was going to scream. By third grade they should be doing so much more. In the end her new teacher in her new school was very dedicated and spent her lunch time with my daughter and she eventually caught up.

The problem is not the teachers or students ,the problem is the people running the school,the CASD needs to make changes in the schools main office and everything else will fall into place.Too many Cheifs no Indians

This school has been an excellent experience for our family. We have been involved for two years. Our son's experience in Kindergarten was super. He was placed in a learning path that not only challenged him, but made learning fun. This school is very open to parent involvement. The PTA is very much welcomed and works along side the administration and teachers.

Academics are average or a bit below; teachers can be harsh and use inappropriate languge at times. Thje district is strapped for money, so the extracurriculars are few and far between. Parental involvement is there, but is not encouraged by administration.

I have two children in this school and we love it. Excellent teachers, caring principal, friendly families. Overall, a rewarding experience.

My daughter entered Kindergarten in 2003. We were not happy at all with the experience. The resources - books, workbooks, and even the most basic supplies were greatly lacking. The teacher called me 2 weeks into the year and told me that my daughter already knew everything she needed to know by June. She told me that there really was not much she could offer her because she had many students who were 'behind' who would require extra attention. My daughter attended every-other-day full day kindergarten. On her off days she attended daycare/preschool, where she was given work to do that was on the first and second grade level. The work she was given in Kindergarten was work she had already done at the age of 3 and 4. Academically, the school offered our daughter nothing. Our second daughter enters school in 2005; she will be attending either private or charter 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.
