    Very good school district! My children went to school in another district until last year. What a difference dedicated and trained teachers make!

    This is one of the best schools in the district. The teachers are involved and supportive and the current principal is wonderful about parental input and involvement. The music teacher is great about scheduling lessons and activities after school. Not much time during school hours for the arts unfortunately a lot of time is spent during the school day on preparing for PSSA's. Until No Child Left Behind is fixed that situation can only get worse but it's not the fault of teachers or administrators.
