So far having seen much help from the school itself for my son who does have behavioral problems. Just basically sending him somewhere else for someone to deal with it. My daughter is also not challenged enough. Seems as if a lot of the teachers are too lazy to teach. My kids hardly come home with h.w and when they do usually from only subject. I've seen better help from other schools they have attended.

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.
