    Elementary school rankings PA
    Best elementary school PA?
    I live in Morrisville PA, looking for the best way to see the "report card" of the public and private schools in the area.

    "Best" is very subjective and personal, especially at this level.
    What are you looking for a school ?
    Have you approached other parents and asked their opinions?
    It's pointless getting hung up on official rankings.

    Go to the PA Dept. of Education website. That would help you find the public schools' report cards. You want to look at class size, demographics, teacher qualifications, test scores, and discipline records. That would help you make an educated decision numbers-wise. For parent input, you will want to look at PTA/PTO strength. Also, each school will probably have some kind of comments on the Internet, and those you can take with a grain of salt.

    I totally agree, I don't want to be focus only on official rating, but the more information I have the better it is.
    Thank you for your answer.

    In CA, the numbers are very accurate, from salaries, to support staff, and credentialing. I've looked at them prior to job changes, etc. Good luck!
