My daughter has had help from many great teachers and the new principle is absolutely out standing. I am not always a member of the PTA every year and cannot always help them out but I can say my child was never treated any differently like that other rater said below. The new principal is outstanding as well.

My granddaughter, Jenna Warehime, is in the second grade at Baresville Elementary school. She is a very intelligent young lady. All of the teachers know her and really like her a lot. She enjoys going and looks forward to what each day will bring for her. The teachers pay close attention to all of their students. They have a great program there. I am glad that my granddaughter goes there.

My great niece, Jenna Warehime, attends Baresville Elementary School in Hanover, PA. She is a very, very bright and knowledgeable student, gets along with everyone, and loves all of her teachers. She was the #1 fundraiser in kindergarten for Jump Rope for Heart, raising over $650.00. She also raised quite a bit of money last year for the Read a Book Program. She is very popular in school and I believe all of the teachers from kindergarten to sixth grade know her by name. I truly believe this school has very knowledgeable teachers, a great learning program for all children. Jenna, as well as her mom, absolutely love this school.

Baresville Elementary School has many great teachers. They are concerned with your child's education. They try to help your child learn and achieve to the best of their abilility. Also the PTA provides many family fun activities for the students to participate in. I am very happy with Baresville and my children enjoy going to school there.

I have had children at Baresville for 10 years and I think it is a wonderful school. The teachers are caring and all the staff is very helpful. I am so glad my family is full of Baresville Bears!

Love Baresville! My daughter loved her teachers, loved her principal. Baresville will always be considered home. They are renovating it to provide better learning for our students. We are blessed that our daughter was a part of Baresville.

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.
