Firstly, I am not reviewing the teachers, staff, or academic curriculum. I am reviewing the lack of communication relayed to new students and parents. As a kindergarden parent I was extremely disappointed that we missed out on the class tour that was never announced. All other schools mailed out informational packets by August 1st and we had to wait until August 20th to pick ours up, which we only new of by calling the school to inquire about new student registration. Their website did not include any updates or links regarding such information. And again, the school failed to provide a school calendar to display any current event or parent night. This lack of information extended into the fact that we did not make the new student tour as they, again, failed to tell us where his classroom or teacher will be. This is a poor excuse for any school and it should be taken more seriously. I hope this is addressed for next years kindergarten class and hope parents are fully notified ahead of class commencement. On a brighter note, all my nieces have graduated from Wilson and trust the academia taught, so I'll will expect and hope for the same caliber of teaching at Spring Ridge.

Marie- In my opinion, you are totally wrong. This school is the best that I have ever inspected. It goes above and beyond its standards with learning. Their students rank probably at the best in PA. The whole Wilson School District is just amazing with teachers, sports and academics. KEEP UP THE OUTSTANDING WORK!!!!

Spring Ridge is a wonderful school with excellent staff and teachers. I was very impressed with the small classroom size and the personal attention the teacher gives to each student. My children love the school and enjoy the activities it offers.

The school itself is a typical small town suberia school with lots of happy children, however if your child is a special education child this is not the district to move into. The district does not offer any current methodologies designed to remediate highly intelligent learning disabled children. The administration frowns on parents that advocate for children.

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.
