I have had two daughters graduated from this school. My first daughter was one of the first of the graduating class when the school first opended, my youngest just graduated in June 2012. Best decision i made taking them out of public school and attending P.E.T. The teachers really care about the students. The principal and teachers were always in involved in making sure the students had what they needed to succeed. Would definitely recommend this school!! Both my daughters graduated with honors and attended college.

Another Uniform complaint.. FOLLOW THE RULES! Oh god forbid no jewelry. Blue Pants and a Tan PET shirt that has to be tucked in? Their should be a law that stops students from looking respectable! Why buy colorful boxers when you cant wear your pants below your buttocks. crying shame I tell ya

First of all the uniform policy is too strict. You must wear blue pants, a tan pet school shirt(tucked in),black shoes, and no jewelry everyday. The principal has no input in the school. If something happens, you must talk to a man named Mr. Campbell. I don't even no what position he holds in the school. If taking a class about cable networking would not be of interest to you, i would not advise you to got to this school.

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.
