About the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments: The Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) is an annual assessment administered in commonwealth classrooms in grades 3 through 8, and in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Pennsylvania adopted more rigorous PA Core Standards in late 2013 and the 2015 PSSA marks the first time the assessment was fully-aligned to the standards. These new, more rigorous standards aim to better prepare students for the 21st century work force.

Open Quote I found the Exeter area a difficult nut to crack. Coming from out of state, Pennsylvania people are very guarded and do not seem very friendly at first. This made for a very difficult transition into the schools here. There was no effort on the schools part to help integrate a new student. Also, be aware that there are two gunclubs nearby as well as several landfill sites that compromise quality of life in the area, adding to noise, water and air pollution. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
