I feel as though the school could offer a bit more with reading help and after school tutoring for each child. Instead it seems as though the teachers keep passing kids that should be held back.

Posted September 18, 2006

I cannot say enough good things regarding Saegertown Elementary. Just over 1 year ago we were new in town. I was working, so my daughter started at Saegertown's preschool almost immediately. This was in July...she began kindergarten the very next month and I was so pleased that she transitioned so easily...thanks to the Child Development Center (the preschool). The teachers there are all quite warm and personable. My daughter has to hug everyone each time she leaves. Now, she is in first grade and is enjoying it thoroughly. There are 21 kids in her class, but so far, she seems to be getting individual attention as necessary; today she told me that her teacher had told her how proud she was of her hard work in writing. She beamed as she recounted this! That smile is the best evidence of a quality school with quality teachers!

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.
