If you believe in multiple assessment tests, common core & teaching to the test--then this school is for you. If your child doesn't meet certain "numbers" then be prepared to have your child tested.

We have been very impressed with this school. The teachers are great and the community of parents is awesome. It's easy to get involved.

SM is a wonderful school! The teachers are top quality and they provide an excellent education for our children. The administration is caring and cooperative and students excel in academics! One of the best Dtown has to offer.

This school is the best Downingtown has to offer. All teachers and the principal supplement their own funds to compensate for inadaquate resources given by the central administration. The principal is a great democratic leader with a unique child-centered and teacher-centered managment style who is involved in every aspect of the lives of the students and teachers. Everyone is respected and cared for as individuals.

My child florished in this school. The teachers are wonderful and caring and the principal really cares about the kids. He was allowed to be himself and his achievment doubled in the year we were there.

This family atmosphere school is outstanding in all areas with highly successful student achievment. Teachers truely work as a team and the administrator truely cares about kids and runs a successful team approach to leadership. For its first year, it has blended the approaches of three feeder schools. Teachers do well dealing with some high income parents that are demanding and have their own interests take a priority over the needs of the children.

Springton Manor Elementary has had a great first year considering the blending of three elementary schools and the fiscal challenges of being a new school during some difficult economic times. The faculty and staff is professional and caring. Students are happy and feel safe. We look forward to watching it grow and settle as one of the best that Downingtown has to offer.

We have been thrilled with Springton Manor in its first year. There are only 19 students in my son's second grade class. The teachers are great, facilties are awesome, very involved HSA.

Large Class size and an unresponsive Administration make this school a huge disappointment to our family. Brand new facilites are beautiful but don't have a strong administration to utilize all available technologies.

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.
