Its nice to see that some values don't change! I went to school here and now my fourth & final child is finishing up her time here. I'm grateful that I could send my children to the same upstanding school that I went to.

I am proud to be part of this school where I put my heart and soul. I am passionate about what I teach and look upon my job as my avocation. I care about the people I teach and with whom I work. The beauty is that I am surrounded by people who feel the same way.

I have been fairly pleased with this middle school although my child had a hard transition from one school to the next when first arriving. I think it's pretty average overall but I would recommend it as I have no real issues with the education it provides.

Indian Valley Middle School's academic program is outstanding. Technology and the arts are available to all students, in addition to the core subjects. Extracurricular activities abound and students are encouraged to broaden their horizons. The faculty is superb.

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.
