Wheatland Middle School has undergone incredible positive change over the past 13 months. New administration and staff, cutting edge technology, major renovations, high quality instructional practices and innovative model curriculum add up to a vastly improved school. The school encourages students to take academic risks and challenge themselves beyond expectations. Students and staff set high academic goals and fashion action plans to meet those objectives. The school saw considerable improvement in state testing results in 2012.

This school has some teachers that do not make the lessons easy to understand therefore most of there students do not pass the class needless to say there are some Great inspirational teachers like good Mr. Addeo and Mr. Hill their the best educators there. They help there students without boring them. They keep the classes alive and they make the lessons more easier to understand. -Jeniffer

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.
