I really think that this school just keeps going down hill. The children are out of control and nothing is being done to correct this.

I think ethan allen has to many discipline problems that are not being taking care of. Children seem to get away with bad behavior. The principal allows kids to stay in this school that keep doing the wrong thing. The children who are trying to learn are constantly interuped by the negative behavior of others. It is a shame that the school has gotten this way because there are alot of good teachers there. Teachers should not have to stop teaching to discipline children all the time. We need help!

My child is in kindergarden and Allen Ethan School has not taught her anything that she does not already know. I feel like my child is getting left behind because they are focusing on subjects that were introduced to my child at the age of 3.

I think the current curriculum is very good. Students are really enjoying Mrs Eisenburgs classes

I think that there are a few teachers that truely care about the children placed there, notibly Mrs Eisenburg and Mr 'M' and Mr Barber, they really challenge the kids, I think that starting last year the current principal is changing the way things used to be and is turning parent respect and trust around compared to other years. The school needs newer books to enhance their curriculum needs this will booster parent confidence and begin to start better test scores and education testing.... Thank You

There are only a handful of teachers at Ethan Allen that really care about the children. They are there for the children, not just a job and a paycheck. The leadership is rarely available and don't handle problems until it is too late (ie, someone gets hurt or in 'serious' trouble. There is no control over the children and the children know it. It is an utter disgrace!

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.
