Enjoyed how interactive and insightful the staff was at the back to school night. I truly think that keeping the parents informed and aware can only add to the education for our children. Very impressed.

I transferred my child from another school to Hope Charter. Hope utilizes Study Island which helps children improve in math, science, and reading skills. This is a great school with small class sizes.

Hope Charter has come a long way in six years. The school went from riots to quiet and it was worth the wait for growth. What most people fail to realize is Hope is an alternative school that help reshape youth and renew their minds. Hope Charter has dedicated adminiswtrators, teachers and support staff. Hope Chater is exactly what it states. Hope. What makes Hope an outstanding school is that Hope gives students what no other schools does, a chance to start a new life, they show other schools that there is Hope for the hopeless, and that's one to grow on. Never give up Hope because hope are dreams for the future and everyone needs hope.

Hello I was a student at hope charter, that left to attend Martin Luther King high school for the school yeah of 2006-2007. and will be attending the same school in September. All i wanted to say was, at Hope I didn't learn anything. There was many days of the school year, where we wouldn't have a teaher at all. Teacher came and went in that school. yes! we did have a few teachers who did their jobs, and tought us. The studets were out of control. The staff of the building let kids do what they wanted to, and there was no kind of order. i'm sending the message hoping my voice can spark a change in the school, because I see nothing but bad coming from that building. Ps; Please take this is someone who have been through it, and not as a game.

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.
