Even though the district has really laxed in their concern for the students in the York City District, Goode School has definately outshined all the other schools. Ms. Thomas is a wonderful principal, and the teachers, seem to really care for the students. I love how the administration and teachers are always there working with not only the students, but the parents as well. I know that if there is a problem, they will try hard to solve the issue. My son goes there and loves school, my daughter will start kindergarten this fall. Thank you to all of you, keep up the 'Goode' work.

My son attended Goode school last year for Kindergarten and had Mrs. Sandra Seitz as his teacher. She was absolutely amazing with him and the rest of the students. I am so happy that his first teacher really lit the fire of learning. He now loves to read. I really want to thank Mrs. Seitz for everything she has done.

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.
