This school just got remodeled and it desperately needed it. It looks beautiful! There is a rooftop garden/play deck. The current enrollment for the 2013-2014 school year is 950 students. The student/teacher ratio is NOT 16:1...more like 26:1 Most if not all classes are sitting with 24 or more students with some classes at 30.

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.
