Hmm. The faculty gets a 5 out of 10 The building is failure at it's finest. the floors are cracked the roof leaks no air conditioning bugs It hasn't been renovated for over 50 years (Mr. ?????? told us) To be plain it's old and disgusting.

I lovee this school, almost all of the teachers are awesome, and so are the students! The only TERRIBLE thing about this school is that it seems that it hasnt been renovated since the 70's. there is no air conditioning, the lockers are trashed, some of the water fountains have to be covered in garbage bags because theyre probably toxic, the floor in the spanish room (mrs. dent) is terrible, and it is SO old. it needs A TON of work, but other than that its great :)

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.
