This school needs a lot of support working with special education, especially children with ADHD and other mental health issues. Staff need more professional development, equipment and instructional materials , resources, and outside consultants to assist with parents and teachers.

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.
