It's one of the best schools in Pennsylvania. It has a strict no bullying policy which makes sure students do not get bullied which makes the atmosphere that much better. The diversity is so great and there are a bunch of students with different cultural backgrounds. There are so many classes for different people to take depending on your interests. Wouldn't rather be in any other school in Pennsylvania, its truly an experience.

Top Notch - if you have a good student this is the place to send them. There is plenty of opportunity for them to succeed.

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.
