They do not support at all even when the child has an IEP....my son went to Conewago Elementary which is in Northeastern School District....they suck at following IEP's and learning disabilities

This school was great. I was a student here. The teachers were awesome, and they all made a real sense of personal connection to every student they could. The "problem children" were always dealt with, but with fair punishments. The school was always working to make us better students, too. I have since graduated, and from going to every school in the district, I can really say this one was the most fairly run one. Despite budget cuts, NMS is always doing its best to challenge every student academically, as well as stimulate our personal interests and abilities. The school is a brand new building, and has probably around 3-500 kids. The technology is very up to date, and the extracurricular activities are well managed and funded. I loved my experience at this amazing school, and i only wish that my time was longer here, and as great over in the senior high school.

I cannot say enough about the fantastic teachers and administration at NEMS. They continue to strive to always improve PSSA scores. They have total respect for students who likewise enjoy going to school. The administration is outstanding. I only wish they could follow my son into high school. This is the finest school my any of my children attended. A+++

I love everything about northeastern middle school. The staff teaches respect and also gives it back to the kids. They are very proud of their students and they show it. Very supportive staff always working with the parents to make things better for everyone.

Committed staff unwilling to ship challenging students off to alternative schools.

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.
