Blacklick is a great school. My child is in Kindergarten and has learned so much already and it is not even the end of the first 9 weeks yet. She has even begun to read. The sight word program 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 goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
