    Asa packer school is fantastic but please use caution with the aftercare services! My son who was a long term daycare child was badly injured while in their care. The injury could have easily been prevented with the correct surpervision for a young 5year old! Parents please be familiar with Pennsylvania law that provides this daycare with governmental immunity in the face of pure negligence!

    The adherence to test scores overwhelm this school. Test scores are important but they don't mold a child they judge the child. I've noticed the teachers placing non "cookie-cutter" kids in a box with serious misreading of the individual and equally serious hurt feelings the teacher "doesn't like me". I am irked by the plethora of useless "homework" sent everyday and expectations of 5-10 year olds to understand/organize as if they were adults. Many expectations and not a lot of guidance on how to meet set goals. Most of the teachers are well-meaning albeit not very enthusiastic or creative with their methods. This school also lacks for extracurricular activities. Children NEED "brain-breaks" such as music art and most of all physical education (EVERY day!) kids in general are full of energy and should be given the essential relief of running/jumping/playing. However this school follows suit with todays generation of preferring an overdose of ADHD drugs to use of common sense approach to "overly energetic" (i.e. normal) kids. There are other thinly veiled prejudices that slip out from time to time that disturb me but thankfully my child is too young to comprehend them.

    Asa Packer is a great school. However they are under such intense pressure to maintain their standards that individual student development is non- existent. If your child isn't a "cookie- cutter" kid. Chances are unfortunately they may be left to the wayside.

    Asa packer is the best school yet! Nice here. Almost has as much money as Hanover and never had bad reports on any teacher.Go there now! Don't go to the following schools Rasa Northeast Broccoal or East Hills in the bethlehem area. To tell the truth Hanover is very well natured school too and Spring Garden. Thanks for listening.-

    All the teacher's at Asa Packer are all very nice. They treat my child as if he was one of their own. The teacher's become very involved with all the children to make them all feel very special the number one child.
