Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA)

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 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.

    I found a very rigorous math sequence w/ Algebra 8th grd permits students to study AP Calculus AB & BC or Calculus in 12th gr. College prep math sequence Math Analysis 12th grd. Students can have courses in both sequences. AP Statistics is an elective choice if completed Algebra II. Science sequence Earth & Space Biology10th Chemistry11th Physics12th. Honors in each curricula are more rigorous & designed to challenge academically motivated high-achieving students. AP Physics fulfill the 12th grade requirements. Students may elect AP Biology AP Chemistry or AP Computer Science. Students can enroll in 2 science courses in the same year. AP courses are available English Literature & Composition United States History Government &Politics US European History Biology Chemistry Physics C Mechanics Music Theory Calculus AB Calculus BC Statistics Computer Science A French German Latin Vergil Spanish. Languages SPanish French Spanish Latin & German. languages are only Honors level or AP. Students must take 2 years of a foreign language to graduate along w/ 40 hrs of community service. many clubs various sports great student body & well educated staff.

    Since moved to this area in 2007 I had a kid in elementary school and two in middle school. Now I have two in High School and the quality progressed as they move from Elementary to Middle and now High School. Great Schools. I did some research before I decided to buy a house in Landenberg the property taxes and houses are cheaper than the district close to Kennett. I bought the house that the same one in that district would have been 25% more and the taxes the same. The difference in cost doesn't justify to pay more. KHS facilities are new and nice I don't see trailers as much as the other district. The teachers are tough and good they have lots of AP Honor and electives and they will offer engineering classes as well.

    For a small high school it offers an extraordinary range of courses taught at a variety of levels. There are quite a few teachers with outstanding dedication. The school administration is flexible about student placement and bends over backwards to accommodate requests. Academics are strong some sports are weak but there are many activities and music is especially good. Exceeded my expectations.
