This school is in the lower 20% of ALL public schools in PA. I am a former school board director (not at this district) and parent. I am currently looking for a different school for my child. The teachers do not care, they just put in their time. I have only met a few teachers that do not blame students for their own teaching faults and many bully the students. It is impossible to get ahold of anyone by phone, the system is always down and voicemails are always full. The school website is horrible and teachers do not update their pages. I really have nothing good to say about this school. They allow non highly qualified teachers to teach which is not acceptable. If your child doesn't hate school they will if they go here.

This is a very clean, safe, and smart school. Children here have many opportunities including drama club, science olympiad (which placed 5th in states), band, chorus, and numerous sports. There's rarely a fight, only 2 this year, and everyone knows eachother. We have the best PSSA scores in the district. I highly recommened this school for any child.

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.
