This school is a really great school. There is a lot of great parent and teacher encouragement, and the classes are pretty small!


Posted September 21, 2012

This school is...alright. It has a satisfactory learning environment. Our old principal was really not the best, but now we have a new principal who is better. The faculty is varied some teachers, such as my former gifted teacher are excellent. Others, such as my third-grade teacher, were really awful. My third-grade teacher did numerous things that bothered us, up to the point where she gave me a peanut product, telling me everything was peanut-free (I am allergic). Then she, along with the school nurse, proceeded to place me in a peanut-free table that looked like somewhere one might sit if one were acting up. My gifted education teacher was very helpful in this matter, giving me a way to invite friends to sit with me. I have heard other complaints regarding the aforesaid third-grade teacher, including one that stated she ignored it when a student was being bullied. As for the rest of the staff, some are great and some are bad. Just hope you get one of the good ones.

J.E . Fritz has wonderful teachers, staff, and principal! My children love attending. The school has a great PTO that provides great extras for the kids(pizza/bingo night, Spring Fair, movie night, ...) The school encourages parent involvement in many ways.

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.
