A.B Day is a pretty good school...could be better, the curriculum does not push our kids to their fullest potential. The library has been closed for years..WHAT'S A SCHOOL WITHOUT A LIBRARY!...The school although funding is cut can do ALOT BETTER!

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.
