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.

    CB South is a great school with great teachers. The facilities are better than most area schools as the school opened in January 2005. The teachers took a vested interest in the students and want them to succeed. Guidance counselers are a great resource to learn about post-secondary school opportunities.

    I graduated from here in 2009 and I wouldn't change a thing if I could. Great teachers classmates and everything in-between.

    I attend and graduated from South 3 years ago. Some of my greatest memories derive from my time in the high school. The bonds I made with my teachers and peers are still strong today. Its like the teachers can't forget your face or your name no matter when you graduated. As for my graduating class 2008 there were no significant cliques everyone got along and thats what I liked about the school the most.

    CB SOUTH IS WHERE ITS AT! there is INCREDIBLE school spirit especially at football games! the stands are nearly ALWAYS full. and the students take incredible pride in saying they go/graduated from South. There is a wonderful music program at south for choir band AND orchestra. There is literally something for everybody to get involved.

    CB South has brand new facilities and is equipped for any class or extracurricular that can be though of. Furthermore though there are not a ton of traditions since the school is relatively new (5 years) there is a remarkable ability to begin new clubs and activities which not only develops leadership skills but also builds resumes and contributes to a positive experience. From my experience the bad teachers are few and far between with predominately incredible teachers who are truly dedicated to teaching. I have attended 6 different schools in 4 districts and CB South wins hands down

    The teachers think the run everything. They do not help the kids as much as the other two schools my kids have attended there is zero school spirit and the principle needs to go!!
