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.

    We love Rogers! My son is in Kindergarten and his teacher is just fabulous. My son is progressing quickly and loves going to school every day!

    Not consistent. The saying a few bad apples ruin the bunch is applicable. I would not recommend Shaler School District to any parent moving to North of Pittsburgh.

    We love Rogers Primaray! The teachers are fabuluous. They truly care about the children and I am repeatedly amazed by what the teachers have the children accomplish each year. The staff is incredible and always takes that extra step to help the parents and students. Everyone at Rogers is a credit to our school district and we couldn't be happier to be a part of it. Also we really appreciate all the activities and programs that the school and the RPTO develop and organize for the children and the families. They not only enhance the kids' education but bring all of us together as community.

Very impressed so far with what my daughter has learned in Kindergarten last year and so far this year in 1st grade. She truly loves going to school which to me is wonderful! The PTO is outstanding as well!

    We have only been at Rogers for a month but so far we love the small size and feel of the school. There is a great focus on getting first graders reading and on a positive/no bullying school environment. Plus there seems to be great communication between the school and the families.

    Small school=personal attention. Every staff member knows every student--their personalities their strenghts & their weaknesses. Individual attention makes all the difference!
