I really don't think they have a special ed program, they really do need help in this department . so many students need the services,but are not getting it. Too many students can't even read.

Stay away from Easton period. The whole district is a complete failure. Send your kids to a private, religious, or charter school. I will be taking my daughter out asap and she will be going to St. Janes Catholic School. The teachers are ok, they try hard but sometimes your best is just not good enough. The staff and Principal are a big part of the problem. They have no leadership and are rude. They don't take their job seriously and are overpaid. You can find out all this information on openPAgov.org. The schools are failing these kids. My daughter has learned nothing from school yet. She started school being able to count too 20, recite the alphabet, and write her first name. She tells me she is bored in class and gets yelled at by the teacher when she tries to move ahead because the teacher is busy working with the kids who cannot learn basic stuff like how to write their name. This area also has a lot of parents who use this school as a daycare and fail to teach their kids anything including morals. There also is a high number of illegal immigrant families that don't speak english and send their kids to school unable to learn which holds the other students back.

My nephew goes to Paxinosa. Originally it started out in Forks Twp, a very nice area. 3 years ago Paxinosa was supposed to undergo renovations and the children from there and 2 other elementary schools were moved to the old Easton Middle School. Paxinosa ended up staying and they've thrived through the hardships of having a school not build for small children, losing a lot of their teachers (budget cuts), etc. My nephew enjoys school there, mostly because of the teachers and caring staff, the curriculum, and their ability to survive through hardships and stand up for and with the children. I didn't want him going to school in downtown Easton, but I am glad he is with the faculty and staff that care about their students, really teach them and do the best they can for each and every child.

wow well my daughters experience there at the school was fantasy. She was not there long but the quality of the academic programs was more than I had expected. As far as if she had a student problem I address it and the principal call me at home the same night. So, that school strives for education and no foul playing. I would recommend this school for any child wanting a good education.

Our family has been envolved with this school for the last 6 years, my daughter being the last. She was recently moved to another school because of the over abundance of children enrolled there. I feel compelled about this transition, because our family has had four wonderful kids leave that school after fourth grade. I would have loved to say fifth child. It's the type of school that you will never forget, because of the quality of learning and the teachers that go the extra mile to ensure that the children put their best foot forward is incredible.

This is a school that is filled with teachers who care about our children! Many teachers spend extra hours helping with in-school and after school activites!

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.
