I have since improvement over the last couple of years. The new principal and teachers seem to be taking AG North in the right direction. Most of the teachers seem to take an interest in helping the students, but some struggling students seem to fall through the cracks. I feel that at least the students going into eighth grade should be able to have choices for the classes they will take the following year. Currently, they are given a schedule without any input on what they want or what interests them. By doing this, it may better prepare them for their transition to the high school and their future. I think it would also benefit the students by having a brief homeroom period at the end of the day. This would allow the students to get any necessary items from their lockers or put things away that they don't need to take home instead of carrying heavy, unnecessary books, etc. home every day. It would also give them an opportunity to go see a teacher if they have questions about something. Although communication is improving, especially with the implementation of Wednesday folders, I was very disappointed when I did not receive a reply from an email I sent to a teacher.

This school is absolutely one of the best schools in Fayette County. The teachers here actually care about the students. I attended this school for 7&8th Grade and I loved it. The teachers are very talented and pushed me to strive for perfection. I went from getting A's and B's to being a 4.0 student enrolled in the gifted intelligence program. One good benefit is there is zero tolerance for bullying. When the office is notified of some bullying other people they take immediate action. There is a set disciplinary system which is strictly enforced and it works really well. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

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 goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
