Open Quote When we moved into the area 7 years ago it was equal to the other 3 elementary schools in the area and was ranked in the 200's. now it is ranked in the 600's. not good. I truly believe this is because of Common Core. I have had to reteach my daughter math, English grammar and cursive writing. They are very concerned with meeting the PSSA scores then teaching, They also baby the students. Letting them retake a test until they are correct. Many kids in my daughters class are confused. My daughter , also, has problems with other students bulling her, even though they have a non bulling program. My daughter tells me most teachers ignore the problems. Also, if you are from outside the area they ignore you. Which we are. They also do not have control of the class rm, kids are not focused, talking in class when class is going on, kids yelling out, braiding hair etc.. All this I saw on Parent visitation. School taxes are too high in PA and now they want to raise it. I'd rather take the $6000 in Taxes and put it towards a Catholic Education! I would not recommend this school. The high school here has gang problems and we are looking to move in summer of 2017. 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.
