Fayetteville has the best faculty, all teachers and aides care for each student and devote many hours outside the classroom to making it the best for their students. Plus an awesome PTA which is there for all the students.

2008 - 2009 I will like to say, that we were extremely pleased with Fayetteville Elementary experience. This was our first year at Fayetteville Elementary, our previous school was Crestview Elementary in Richmond, VA. The boys enjoy the school structure, events, and learning strategies far more than their previous elementary. The transition was a success, and I myself am very pleased with my observations of the school. We are excited, that we choose this school for our boys. I have a 9 year old in third grade that did very well, and a six year old who had a wonderful first year at Kindergarden! I strongly recommend Mrs. Duran for Kindergarden.

I have three children in Fayetteville Elementary School and all of them are just loving it. The teachers are very skilled and helpful. They encourage and guide my children. The head teacher is great with the kids, they look up to him and follow his model. He makes coming to school a learning and fun experience. I am very impressed by everyone in this school and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for taking great care of my kids. A lot of parents are involved in the school activities and they seem to be very dedicated and driven by the kids ambition and willingness to learn. I have to add that the cafeteria staff are wonderful too. Thank you Fayetteville Elementary School for a great job!

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.
