It's a great school . I was remember when my daughter was in 6 grade they made her go in the hall way sit in a chair and she was wearing flipflops . And they made her take one off and put boot on her . I wish they would do that more to all school . And she got great grades and went to high school

Klinger is a good school. I think there should be more extra curricular activities. Also 6th graders should be able to participate in more sports. Other than that it is a great school to attend.

This is an amazing school. I have never seen a principal that is so involved not only with the students, but the parents also. He is present at almost every extra curricular acitivity. There are so many great things for the kids to get involved in. It is a very comfortable setting and the kids really feel safe in school daily. The teachers are very compassionate and caring.

Klinger is a great school. Its an over all great experience. I learned tons. The teachers are great. The school is clean...for the most part. It offers a lot of extra-curricular activities and such. Also the classes are organized by grade so freshmen dont really get mixed in with seniors and vice versa. The classes are night across the hall from each other. Its very convinient. Over all great school.

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.
