Posted June 27, 2013

This school and it's elementary counterpart are terrible. The students do not want to learn. They walk out of class, swear at the teachers. It's no wonder they are doing so bad on the tests. They do not want to learn. Also when a student gets written up for not obeying classroom rules, fighting, etc. There is no action from the administration. Teachers have been hit, shoved, and worse. There have been no new books for years. School district is hesitant to raise the taxes but most people rent, so the people who own the complexes can afford the rent increase. The teachers are some of the lowest paid in the state. Something needs done with this mess. I see the state coming in on the school if things don't change soon. The kids and the parents run that 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.
