I home schooled my daughter last year. This is the first year at Chief Shikellamy and we love it.

I was a student teacher at this school and think it is great. Although there is low parent involvement, many of the teachers go beyond the call of duty to take care of their students' needs. Test score are going up dramatically, the building is beautiful, and the principal is excellent.

This school is great. My children love going there. They actually want to get up and go to school! The teachers are great, and so is the principal.

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.
