I have gone to this school my whole life, and it is the best school around where I life. We have the best sports teams around, we have very nice playing fields for our sports, we have some of the best teachers around, and we even have the best music groups around here as well. Everyone that moves to here from another school all say the same thing, that we are better than their old school. And to mention ontop of all that, people from many school districts around here as well support us. It's also very nice because we only have one rival.

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.
