When I found out that Drew was the school that my son had to attend I became very nervous because of the data listed on different sites such as this one. After a few months however, my mind was completely changed. Drew is a great school on its way up. The teachers and staff are very caring, fair, and helpful. My son is prepared for high school because Drew provided such a great foundation and he's attending on of the top schools in Philadelphia. The thing holding Drew back which also holds alot of Philly schools back is the lack of funding and availability of resources. We must get involved and let our elected officials know that we care about our neighborhood schools and want top dollar given to them. Our children deserve it.

drew has one of the best staff i've ever been involve with they care about the children there, they have one of the best after school programs that really provide strenght and hope for the children the principal is directly involved with the children he's out in the school yard in the morning to greet the parents and children and as well at the end of the day he make time to see you if you need to see him if you're child is having a problem he gets to the bottom of it. with quick response i love the service that my children get there and every one is very nice and polite to me even when i'm 'being a well you no, i have three children at the school and two that has finished , they went on to high school and doing well due to the staffs concern

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.
