I am a past student. The teachers are willing, best in the district, and so comparing to all of the other elementary schools. School is sanitized and shinning clean. New principal Hellen Stopper. Good principal, good teachers, good school. I recomend it. (Thank you Mrs. Bria for my 5th grade year!)

I love Village Park. My daughters enjoy going to school everyday! The teachers are very helpful and caring. It is a unique school with two different buildings. Great atmosphere and great kids.

Village Park is a terrific school. The teachers are mostly excellent educators. Many of the teachers work far beyond the required day and give students every oppurtunity to learn and grow as individuals.

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.
