I loved my daughter's two years at Franconia! Mrs D. and Mrs. Siegfried are the best teachers ever! Both my daughter and I cried when we had to move out of the district.

It depends on your luck, with this school. Some teachers are great, others, you need to be 'in the know' and request out early. We were late, unfortunately!

My child has spent three years at this school. Only one has been good. Mrs. Unzicker is an awesome teacher, very caring and able. Other than our experience with her, this school has been a nightmare.

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.
