I strongly disagree with the prior review. All 3 of my children attended French Creek, and it is a fantastic school. All 3 had a wonderful elementary experience and were well prepared for middle school, including my child with special needs and medical challenges. The teachers were great - caring, and professional.

I have a child with special needs in this school. We moved here because the special education program was well regarded and really bent over backwards for children with special needs. However, the special program hasn't delivered for my child who is falling further and further behind each year. No one wants to listen.

The friendly and qualified staff make French Creek a wonderful learning place!

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.
