I went to this school as well, it was a great school then and an even better school now! I would not send my children anywhere else : )
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 28, 2010

I was a bit hesitant sending my grandson to this school having first sent him to catholic school. My fears however were put to rest after his first year there. He is presently in Mrs. Forish's class and she has the patience of a saint. Her teaching capabilities are remarkable. She is a wonderful teacher. My grandson's ability to read is above and beyond what I expected of him as well as is his thirst for knowledge. Keep up the good, no excellent, work........

I have a son in Mrs. Bodnar's Kindergarten class. She is a Great teacher, the kids love her. My son loves this school and My husband & I love it as well. This school is one of the best in the area. I am looking forward to them making it a K-8th grade school. Thank you for making it a great first year of school for my son. Keep up the good work!

This is such a wonderful school tucked quietly away in McAdoo. The programs they have are great and they encourage parents to attend all events. My child is in 2nd grade and could not ask for a better teacher. Mrs. Forish is wonderful! She is kind, understanding, and treats the children with respect instead of a way to 'make a living'. The only one change I would request recess. Other then that - this school is wonderful.

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.
