I experienced this school for one year. I helped the appointed first grade teacher. I have never experienced such a wonderful and caring teacher. He was wonderfulL--he held those students to the highest standards. He really cared about his students and gave them a lot, both scholastically and monetarily. Administration is very bad. There is no support of any kind for the teachers and morale is very bad. The teachers 'work like dogs.' There is a teacher's aide who is verbally abusive to the students. The school cannot keep good teachers. The principal can't lead, therefore students and teachers suffer. I wanted to continue teaching because my students 'loved me--the Principal didn't!

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.
