I was not impressed with this school. There was no help when my child was struggling. The principal was more worried about herself and how the school looked to the community. very unsatified.

Smaller school, great teachers, and smaller classes. My daughter loves it here, and has had a great experience so far.

This is a great school - the teachers are there to teach and help you. My son has had a great few years there and my daughter is just starting out.

This is the best in the district! The principal is very hands on with each of the classes. The teachers help each other for the after school program to assit those that are having trouble. Safety is #1 walking thru the front door. The PTO is outstanding at providing for the school. The only thing I dislike is if they have too many in your grade you are shipped to another school in the district.

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.
