My wife and I currently have our son in this school. We couldn't be happier with the staff. I know it's only been a little over a week or so, but our son enjoys his teacher and his classmates. He enjoys the activities throughout the day. The classes have a fantastic teacher/student ratio which is very important to us. So far so good. Before our son attended this school, we didn't meet one person who didn't love this school. We are glad to be residents of the area and this school district.

We love this school! We have two children attending here currently, and the faculty is absolutely wonderful to work with. They are so enthusiastic and dedicated to their students. You get a warm greeting as soon as you walk in the door from the lovely ladies who work in the front office. In regards to the teachers, they are quick to respond to my inquiries, and I feel like they go above and beyond to keep me informed of my children's current progress, classroom curriculum, school news, and upcoming events. Did I mention that my children absolutely adore their teachers? I am looking forward to the next few years at Loganville- Springfield :)

My daughter has attended 3 different school districts since Kindergarden due to a divorce I must say that this district is the best! Last year she attended a district which I wont say names but they never took a science or social studies test the entire year (3yr grade) We decided once we moved to this district to hold her back due to the other districts lack of teaching and this year (end of Oct) she has taken so many test in these subjects and she is excelling so much already this year!

Great School!! We love Mr. Carl!! I have been very pleased with the teachers and the communications with the parents, they have made it easy to contact the staff at Loganville Springfield. My daughters both love attending school here, and that says alot!! The bus system has a lot to be desired, though. I've noticed that the schedule for pick up and drop off varies by almost 1/2 hour each day! Also, my daughters do complain about being bullied by older children on the bus. I wish Dallastown school district as a whole would have their own bus company instead of hiring out to a sub contrator.

We are new to the school district and so far, Loganville-Springfield is outstanding. The staff is committed to the children and my son comes home everyday with something new knowledge.

I actually took my child out of this school 3 months into her Kindergarten year. I found that communication was nearly non-existant, the teacher was unwilling to allow parents in the classroom even on a monthly basis, and the principal was very little help in resolving a very frustrating and negative experience. Our problems ranged from problems on the bus with bullies to lack of teacher contact.

As a parent who has had a total of 5 children that attended Loganville-Springfield Elementary I am pleased to say that this is one of the best schools in the state. My two youngest children attend Loganville now and my youngest son has learning disabilities. I have found that his teachers are always available to talk to me and are so focused on helping him to find ways to accomplish what he needs to do and to assist him on learning how to maintain what he has learned. The teacher's are always very positive, friendly, and are very caring about their students. I feel that without the teacher's at Loganville, my child may have been one of the children you hear that fall through the cracks. The teacher's have given my son a great foundation that will carry him through all the years of schooling to come. I am eternally grateful for all the time and effort that each teacher has put into their students.

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.
