Thurgood Marshall has a terrific Head Start Program. The teachers are engaging and truly love their jobs. As far as the rest of the school, it could use better structure. There were a lot of bullying going on there and hardly any parent involvement. I began to homeschool all three children after my youngest schooler graduated from their head start program.

We don't like the school at all. My son is not going back next year. The school is full of bullies, careless teachers and staff. This was our first year, my son is in 4th grade, we made a really bad desicion.

This is a very good school in reference to Pre-K. My son has learned alot, they teachers are loving, talented and well qualified. There is great discipline taught in the class, as well as interpersonal skills and communication. Proper assesments were taken quarterly to the childs progress, and a unique etensive sheet was given to show what the child needs to work on, even down to what letters and numbers they dont know and why.

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.
