Both of my children attend this school, however I do wish this school went up to eigth grade, I believe they have the room as well. I do help out in the classrooms, but I agree that there needs to be more parents to help out if they can.

My son has attended this school since kindergarten and very pleased with the school. The only thing would be to expand the mentally gifted program.

My son has attended Fox Chase for about 3 years now. The curriculum is great as well as the music program. I just feel the mentally gifted programs need to be expanded.

My child attends this school. Overall, I like the school, however they really need to work harder with the kids to get the pssa scores up. I rate this school a 3.5.

I taught at this school and wish that I have never left. The atmosphere is very friendly and the children are lovely. I would say that about 85- 90% of the children there are eager to learn and enjoy their time while in class. The principal is always willing to help the children achieve as well as the teachers. The children will be missed deeply.
