I dont like this school although it suppose to be in a great school district id rather send my kids to March elementary being my first choice or Cheston being my second choice i have two children that go here and they both have been bullied in elementary yes elementary apparently that is ok since the teacher and principal do little or nothing to resolve it and on one occasion blamed my daughter fro not telling the teacher about it im thinking about home schooling them.

I am very pleased with Avona. I have two children whom attend there. The staff is wonderful and helpful. They really are involved with the students and their education. The school is very clean. My kids love going to school there. I feel very secure in the fact that they are given a great education there. The PTA does such a wonderful job. The school has some after school activities. Even game night and movie night. What a great way to spend time with your kids at no cost to you. Avona teachers and principal encourage reading. It is a wonderful feeling when your child picks up a book because they want to, not because they need to.

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.
