This school is one of the lowest tested schools in the state of Pennsylvania. The school does not provide adequate support for special needs students. when there are problems between students, the school rarely does anything to resolve the issue, causing long-term conflicts. The school also reports students for truancy of they are late even a few minutes 4 or more times, regardless of the circumstances. The school is so bad, we are going to be transferring our students into another school. If possible, avoid this school.
