We are not from the area. My children, previously in a local parochial school, came to this school not knowing anyone. Immediately they were well accepted by other students & faculty. My son joined soccer & basketball & though not an experienced player at first, he certainly wasn't driven out. My daughter made lots of friends from all different 'cliques' & after 3 years, still hangs out with them all. She's not involved in any school sports. My son's preference is to have just a few close friends. I attribute their success & acceptance at school to them just being nice kids- nothing more. The school's music department and art classes are fabulous. Sports no doubt is a huge part of teen life. Though I personally think our nation is overly obsessed with sports, it gives children something to do, to strive for, and is physically healthy. Unfortunately, kids who get bullied & excluded are everywhere. But a child's feelings toward others starts at home. I think it's an excellent school and Mr. Koba is a wonderful 'hands-on' principal running a tight ship. Nearly every time I go to the school, I see him in the hallway. We are quite pleased with the school & it's academics.

If you are in the local "clique" you are ok, otherwise forget it. Your kid won't succeed here. This district teaches kids 'it's who you know" not "what you do" that matters. Just look at the staff at the school and their history in the district. It's very easy to see. Don't even think of bringing your child into this school as a new student. They will be miserable and driven out of any sports/activities. Again, it's about the clique and your connections in the area. The school cares more about sports than academics. This school rates success based on a high school sports career and not much beyond that. It's funny to hear others talk about the greatness of this place. It's mostly from those who have never lived or worked outside of the area to see and learn about the real world. This is not a place where your child can be prepared to succeed beyond Davidsville. Keep looking, especially if new to the area.

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.
