Principal Hoodak has done a fantastic job and I am happy my child is going there. I enjoy going to arts and craft nights. The teachers challenge the children(even the parents). Mr.Hoodak is committed to the community and education. He is the first one there and last to leave. He must not sleep. Oh yeah, don't step on the grass.

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.
