    We moved here from NJ and my fourth grader really loved this school. In NJ she was promoted to the next grade without actually passing the grade so I forced administration to put her back in the 4th grade in November 2012. We moved to PA in March 2013 and she has truly made a great comeback even getting A's and B's! The classes are roughly 15 students per class. This school goes from grade 3 to grade 5 and then off to middle school. Great atmosphere with a mixed race of students aswell as handicapped special needs students. Teachers are always in contact via email and school calls for any announcements reminders and child absences.

    This school is excellent with nice teachers and a very nice staff s. Wenton is bright and nice but a good not to stern disiplinarian I know this because I attend c.r.i.s you'd be crazy not to enroll your child into this school! Your child will be sure to enjoy the greek team names and looping teams will make your child close to their teachers!

    It has great teacher students and administration! This school faces unique challenges with a such a diverse transient population of students some that don't see an adult other than thier teachers all week long yet by working together they have managed to find success. CRIS is officially 'making progress' for the first time in six years!

    I went to this school I am recently a graduate but i feel this school was great. The staff did everything in their power to help you suceed and they hve a lot of fun activities yo can get involved in.

    Most teachers here work with their students to help all of them reach their goals and to increase their academic performance. Most parents are actively involved in checking homework and grades but many are unaware that homework is often available via email updates or phoning the homework hotline. The home-school communication is weak. Students with active parents are the students who do best at this school.

    As long as my daughter gets the education she needs that's all that matters. School isnt for all fun and games. School is for kids to learn for a few hours and then go home. This school gives my child and other children education and gives them disicpline to help them learn in the future.

    This is a Bias Remark in regards to a community. The parents and teachers and children make-up a school. My older son who is 13yrs old attends here and I have no compliaints and he is a B average student that is on the Omicron Team. And I also have a 7 yr old that attends the Charter School and I think that school is on a higher standand of education. And as I remember they passed PA Assesment Test and the Intermediate School is way below the standards.

    The only good thing about this school is the 7th grade team Theta. All the teachers on it have different ways of teahing but their good ways. Also all my classes are with gifted kids or the Star Program so it's good that your with all smart kids b/c they help get smarter b/c they know more most of the time.

    Unfortunaly because of PCP this school in horrid. The studets are out of control most of the day as teachers stuggle to regain control. The guidence office is a joke. the woman in charge is generally not helpful when addressing real student concerns. The one bright spot there is that that are a select few teachers that hold this volitile school together. Even still if you want your child to get a real education with some acutal ciriculum do not end them here.

    My child just started this school this year and I find that the school here is wonderful.The teachers are great and very involved . I had a couple of questions about my child and I left them a message and by that afternoon they had called me back .So far I see no problem with this school.

    I know for a fact that this school is one of the safest schools. They are one of the only schools in the district that has every entrance to the school locked all day. With recent string of school violence. No one is getting into this school unless they are suppose to be there.

    Great school teachers really work with children to bring out the best. My son started out reading below level and has exceled academically.

  • (8 years ago)

    We just left this school district because of safety issues that the school refuses to address. Not to mention the academic level these children are at very low! Children in 4th grade are actually learning on a 2nd grade level.

  • (8 years ago)

    My Son goes to this school. There are 32 kids in his class way too many for the teachers to know what each child needs as an individual. There are serious problems with behavior violence and racisim that the school is either afraid to handle or does not know how to handle. I am doing everything I can to get my children out of this school and so are all my friends and neighbors.
