I use to attend Edward Hand and the discipline was great .I teach middle school.

What you see depends where you look. New renovations are happening and the new rooms will have air-conditioning and excellent technology. Around 30 parents went on the field-trip to Washington this year. The Edward Hand History Night was the biggest and best ever this year with food, History Displays, and a play. Over 150 people of all ages attended. And of course the December music performance filled the auditorium like it always does.

The teachers do what they can but the discipline is horrible. There is no recourse for student behavior and students are well aware of this fact. The 2004 reviewer said that morale is at an all time low- well, it has gotten worse. There are no teachers that would stay if given the opportunity to leave. The principal is manipulative and disorganized and teachers are disgusted. The PSSA test scores are FALLING, even with small class sizes. I understand why so many families try to get their kids into neighboring schools.
