This school meets or exceeds expectations of state standards and of parents. Students are given excellent attention to help them grow through smaller class sizes. The is an obvious atmosphere of friendship and kindness throughout the school where everyone is accepted.

Above Average school. This was our daughters first year at Stackpole and she loved it! Wonderful teachers. I was very impressed with the principal.

Above average school that meets all our expectations. Some 'old timers' teachers are still around, but many young teachers are exellent educators who love what they do. This is our 2nd child attending, and we are pleased. Not many extracurricular activities.

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.
