My son has been going to McClure since Kindergarden and now is in 3rd grade. The teachers and administratives are very caring and willing to help you and your child. My experience has been great. My child who has special needs has strive ever year. He has continued to improve with his academics, socializing, and just being a kid. I'm very happy with McClure and i don't like to think of schools after McClure. Thank God i don't have to worry since they move it to K-5 instead of K-4.

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.
