This school is amazing. I just moved out of it only to find out i would never find a school better than it. There are tons of people to hang out with there and the students are really smart and friendly. If you want to move near this area. This should definetly choose this school over others.

The quality of academic programs is great! Students receive a wonderful academic experience and can choose from many extra-curricular activties. Parents are very involved - this is a community school.

I loved this school when i went there and now my sister loves it. Not only are the academics great so are the extrcurricular activities. Everyone can play, join,or just have fun. there are all groups of people, and the teachers were great. Although it is an older school you can feel right at home. It also has a classroom for students with PDD disorders and it is completely handicapped accessable. (No Steps.) This school follows traditions and strives for excellence.

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.
