This school educationally speaking is great, and when my daughter went for Kindergarten we had an amazing teacher who kept frequent contact with me which I absolutly LOVED!! However, when she went to first grade, the teacher never had contact with me and nobody told me she was struggeling until half way into the school year, so now she is repating first grade due to lack of care by her teacher to inform me. The building is really nice, they incorporate technology into the education, which I like, and the principal Mr.Billet is a good principal. I was very dissapointed with the way last year went, and am upset that she has to repeat her grade due to a lack of caring, motivation, or to at least inform me. Her kindergarten teacher sent home weekly logs about what she was learning, therefore I could incorporate it at home, where as her with first grade teacher I had no idea about what she was doing or learning. I went in and called the school numerous times, never with any luck (She was not there). I have mixed feelings about the school, the school would be perfect if all her teachers could be like Mrs.Ness, she was absolutly FANTASTIC!!

I am very happy with the quality of education my son has received at Stony Brook. He loves his teacher and always talks about the cool things he does in art and music class. The teachers keep parents informed and do their best to make themselves available. It's a really great school!

I couldn't be happier with the quality of education my son is receiving at Stony Brook Elementaryl. My wife wanted to enroll him in a private school, but after his first few months at Stony Brook, she gladly changed her mind. And best of all my son adores his teacher. Wonderful School !!!

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.
