Loyalsock is a fantastic school district...in fact the best in this area in my opinion. Their athletics and opportunities are top-notch and the school has been voted top 100 school in the nation by US News and World Report twice! Teachers care about their students and go the extra mile. It's a small school where everyone knows each other and there really haven't been many drug or discipline problems as compared to other local schools. Love LOYALSOCK!

The students at this school are very disrespectful and there is no discipline. Teachers get little respect and students don't feel they should follow any rules. There are no consequences for their actions.

Loyalsock is a great school. I really enjoy getting my education here. Not to mention how friendly everyone is! We learn so much here and really have to put in a effort to pass. I can't say enough good things about it!

This is a school that only cares about students who are well to do and very smart.For the student who onlw has the ability to be a tech student they don't have classes for them.

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.
