My experience with this school over the years has been nothing but horrible. They have a terrible bullying issue that is not dealt with well at all, and in many cases there are a handful of teachers that bully as much as some of the kids do. The education is nothing to write home about either...sorry...to say the least. It is run by a bunch of know it alls that are always right and you are always wrong...until you fight and prove them wrong...in the mean time they love to treat people like they are stupid. Personally...I wouldn't wish that place on a dog. It half kills me to even rate them with one star.

The students are well-mannered at BEA, mostly, and the facilities are top-notch. My children graduated from Bald Eagle and I am very pleased with the education they received there, as they all went on to graduate from college and are now successful adults. I think the teachers and the administrators there do really care about ALL the students, and the school is small enough so no child gets "lost in the shuffle."

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.
