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.

    Last year langley was turned into a K-8. My daughter was in the kindergarten autism support classroom. I loved the staff and the teachers that taught and helped my daughter. They aleays kept ne uodate on her kearnung and her behavior. They always returned my calls in a timely fashion. They always had helpful tips on how to better deal with her outbursts. I am optimistic on this upcoming school year.

    I am a former graduate of this school I am very disappointed in it now if not ashamed of it. There aren't enough electives or clubs. My daughter wanted to take French and they don't have anyone to teach it. A lot of other better schools in the district offer several languages. I just don't have any faith in Langley anymore.

    Langley is perhaps the best kept secret in the Pittsburgh Public Schools. We have some of the highest PSSA scores strict discipline and a caring small school environment. I love teaching here. I would (and perhaps will) send my own children to Langley which I believe to be the highest praise I can give.

    I have an active teenager in this school and he does very well. They have alot of different activities to choose from and he takes advantage of that. They also encourage him to join in on different things for his acedemics. They have given him many opportunities to do things that will benefit him when he graduates. As long as you show the interest they encourage it.
