So far, with my limited dealing with the school, I am not happy. I am trying to become more involved with both my children's education ( I have 2 boys who go there). The school administration would receive a failing grade from me on any assistance in this. I have called a few times asking for information and have gone to the school itself only to be given the run around. Once I did get to my one son's homeroom teacher it was better. I think the school should become more pro-active with the parents who want to help more and become more involved with the children's education rather than ignoring us and seeming not caring.

I think that sometimes there is a problem with the special education programs and certain ways they dont give the children what they need and also the teachers tend to be prejudice against certain races.I think they need to improve the way they run the special ed classes and get more educated teachers in there that follow the rules of the special education programs.

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.
