As a parent, I cannot say enough good things about this school, regardless of the low test scores. I have two children who have both excelled at this school. The teacher and staff are wonderful and truly care about all of their students. We are very happy with the gifted program and all of the specialists. Essentially, do not judge this book by it's cover.

My son is in 2nd grade here, and I volunteer a lot so I get to see what goes on. The teachers and all staff really care about the students. They give and expect respect to and from the students. My son is excelling here and I have nothing but respect for the teachers and principal. They work very hard.

I substitute taught here several times. The teachers and staff are very unfriendly, unwelcoming, and passive-aggressive. I not only felt they treated me like that, but I even saw them fighting with one another in the hallway. I will never sub at this school again.

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 goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
