Great school! My kids are always bringing fun projects home and the communication between teachers and parents is wonderful! The principal is very well respected too!

We made the decision to move into New Stanton based upon Stanwood Elementary and its district. We are nothing less than pleased with the curriculum, consistent teacher/student/parent interaction and the impressive leadership of the principal! Incredible community and incredible school! We are very happy with our decision! Well done Stanwood!

I think the teachers and staff are wonderful at Stanwood. There are a lot of parent and senior volunteers. The parent organization is very involved in giving to all the kids. A very caring environment. Great school!

I think the quality of the academic programs at Stanwood are excellent. The Gym teacher, the librarian, the language and art teachers are all wonderful. I think there is a high level of parent involvement at Stanwood. They all really care about the kids.

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.
