Great school in a great community. My oldest moved to another, much larger state of the art school her Sr. year and her grades increased based on the quality of education she received at Fleetwood. We have lived here over 15 years and do not want to move primarily because of the schools and the community.

I think Fleetwood is great! We moved here about three years ago and now i have a child in 6th and one in 7th and i could not be happier. There is so much parent/teacher communication, plenty of programs for the kids (mine joined ski club and love it) and every teacher truly cares about the students. A++ in my book!

Fleetwood Is A Great School! I Love It Here! I Am An Eighth Grade Student And I Love It. Most Of The Teachers Are Nice And Yes They Do Care. They Help Me A Lot And I Have Done So Well Here Throughout My School Education. I Have Been Here For 9 Years And I Wouldnt Dream Of Being Anywhere Else. Fleetwood Offers Great Sports And So Many People Are Involved Parents, Teachers, Student. Everyone. Fleetwood Is An Amazing School! Rock On Tigers!

I disagree with the comment below. Fleetwood is a great school! And besides Fleetwood gives their students enough time to talk to one other but they undestand that you go to school to learn not socialize! And yes, there are 10 classes a day....but 1 of those is Homeroom, the other is lunch, and 2 others are related arts which are fun! So really we only have 6 classes that you have to sit through. When I moved here 6 years ago I thought Fleetwood was the best school district around and I still agree with that today! And I agree that the teachers are great they know what they're talking about, can help you in any academic or school related problom, and they CARE! I found it to be a excellent school...and just the perfect picture of what a above average school should be.

I disliked this school because it was hard to make friends. There were 10 classes a day, and they changed, so there were few social times besides lunch, where you had to stay with your group that you had for the entire year. However, most of the teachers(with a few exceptions) were good, knew what they were talking about, and nice. All in all, it's a typical school that I found to be below average.

Fleetwood school district has a high standard for academic achievement. They have a multitude of activities for children in school and before and after school. They are committed to parents involvement with the students and are willing to work with children individually if needed.

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.
