MY son has Aspergers and when he went to this school, they identified this early and worked with him through his elementary years. Great teachers, but not on for special needs. I had 3 other children that went through this school and all recieved a great education, no problems ever with teachers or principal. Every child I had got the attention he or she needed, when needed. Also they really address issues such as bullying.

My son is in 1st grade and has a Autism Spectrum Disorder called PDD-NOS. He has made amazing progress in the past 5 years, and we know that his teachers and the support staff have lots to do with that! To meet Steven, short of a little broken English, you would never know he ever had an issue. Steven's teachers are wonderful at communicating with us and show such creativity and patience with the students. We are proud of Wyomissing Hills Elementary and the students that they are turning out! I hope that if this money is passed on to them, that it will specifically go to helping with their Autism room. Caitlin Gibbs works incredibly hard with her kids, and she should have everything she needs for the kids. Please consider her for this award!

Most of the focus of the school district is on the special educational programs, great school for a special needs child! If you student is not the top 5% of the class - try another district. Beautiful facilities and sports need to focus more on education.

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.
