We have had nothing but positive experiences with this school. The teachers and staff are experienced and caring, and know the children by name. My daughter had a "bullying" experience on the bus this year, and the principal was ON the bus to take care of the problem the same day.

This was my daughters first year at the school and it will be her last. While her teacher was very caring, the principal and assistant principal did very little in the way of leadership and effectively handling student bullying situations. They did offer my daughetr reading and math help but she will not be attending this school nexy year.

Hans-Herr Elementary has the best teachers and caring Principal. They strive to help each student do the best they can. The teachers have excellent communication between themselves and the parents. I would not wish for my children to be in any other school district.

My husband graduated from L-S and when we had children, we moved back to this district for a reason. We have 6 children in the district. It is great to walk in to the office and the staff knows who you are and who your children are - by name. Caring teachers and staff, great academics, tremendous parent involvement = a wonderful and supportive environment for my kids.

This is a great school, caring teachers and wonderful administrators. It reminds me of my elementary school in the 1960's. Parental involvement is high and encouraged. Hans Herr is a very safe and clean school, filled with smiling happy kids.

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.
