this school lacks teacher guidance and parents being involved in their child's activity. Many things have gone undetected or not cared for when it comes to bullying.

I love the atmosphere at this school! The teachers are devoted, caring professionals and the staff is kind. The quality of education is very good.

Central Cambria is an exceptional school. We moved here from a neighboring district and are so glad we did the focus is on the kids and the work in math and reading is ahead of what my child was doing at the old school.

Posted September 7, 2004

My fiance and I were deciding which school our daughter would attend and I was highly adement that our child go to Central Cambria. I had a many great experiences there. The teachers all tried their best to mold the students into fine young adults. They taught us many life lessons and encouraged us to shoot for our dreams. They were never harsh and they were always there to listen. The elementary teacher are kind, understanding, and patient. Just how you'd like your children to be treated. My daughter has been enrolled there for two weeks and she loves it. We were worried she wouldn't fit in right away but she has had no problems making friends. I strongly believe this is a great school to learn social skills as well as great academic accomplishments.

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.
