My daughter attends this school and I'm very happy with it. She has been here for K and first grade. Looking to move and am seeing not all schools are created equal.

We have four children attending this school and two of them have learning disablities. Every teacher has played a role in helping us help our children receive the best education for thier specific needs. We really love our school.

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.
