This School is The worst school my kids have ever attended! If you are planing to move to the area make sure your kids are not attending this school. I have a a lot of reasons why but I would like to stay anonymous. Plus I don't have the space in this review to write everything that happen. I'm paying higher taxes for no reason!

This school has absolutely no understanding or patience for the student with special needs or special education needs. It is evident in each interaction with teachers who teach regular education and subjects. There is no specializing the education to the needs of the student and special education students are penalized using a card system with little regard given to the IEP. We are moving out of the district and would never recommend our experience here to the family of any other special needs student.

Lorane elementary is perfect! Our daughter loves school - we attribute that to the fact that she is so happy with her teachers. They really take the time to make sure the kids are learning. Teacher conferences are a pleasure. Great job, Lorane!

This is a great school, the teachers are very good and the communication between parent and staff is wonderful. I feel very safe sending my children there.

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.
