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 wouldn't trade this school for any other school. I moved into this area for the schools and I am very pleased. The teachers are completely wonderful. Everyone is nice and willing to help. One thing that surprised me was two years ago at christmas time I went into the school in the morning with my daughter to carry food for the class and the teachers were in the lobby singing carols and playing instruments. It was very nice.
