The children at this school are horrible. For the past two days I have been trying to get in touch with someone (principal or school police) because the Strawberry Mansion high school girls keep coming to my house to fight. It does not seem as though the school cares but when something bad happens they want to get involved. How can you be talking so positive about this school when they don't care what the children do after school with their school sweatshirts on representing this school!!!!

This school is really dangerous. Lots of fights happen here, and you never know what could happen. The teachers and security wants to help this school but this school can never be saved/

The academic programs here at Strawberry Mansion,or the Mansion as we call it,are very challenging for some students who are above average. Meaning if you are above a certain level in academics they will place you in a class full of kids like you,academically wise,and give you things that are more challenging and difficult. If you aren't above average then they still place you in a group by academic level it's just that they teach you at a pace suitable for your level. The quality of the teaching is also great it's really amazing how well our teachers at the Mansion find ways to teach us. We have alot I mean alot of extracurricular activities at the Mansion. We have a culinary arts program,a excellent band and drumline,a very unique martial arts team,that I suggest you check into,we also have a strong standing Student Government,a fabulous dance crew,and a lot of sports.

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.
