Three Bucks County school districts are among the top 50 highest-scoring school districts of the decade in Pennsylvania, writes Ethan Lott for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
To identify districts with the highest-scoring students in the past decade, the Pittsburgh Business Times — a sister paper of the Philadelphia Business Journal — analyzed Pennsylvania 2010-2019 standardized testing data.
2020 tests were suspended, owing to the pandemic.
Central Bucks ranked highest in the county as the 14th highest-scoring school district of the decade. On an annual basis, the school district ranked eighth in 2011 but dropped to No. 24 in 2020.
Next is New Hope-Solebury in 17th place. The school district ranked 19th in 2011 but climbed two positions by 2020.
The local list is rounded out by Council Rock (No. 44). In 2011, the school district ranked No. 30 but dropped to No. 52 in 2020.
