Two Bucks County school districts made the 2022 list of best educational environments across Pa. The analysis — done by the Pittsburgh Business Times — assessed standardized test scores. Ryan Mulligan reported the findings for the Philadelphia Business Journal, PBT‘s sister publication.
The yardstick to measure statewide performance comprised two annual evaluations: The Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) and the Keystone Exams.
The former gauges institutional success in instruction on English, Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science/Technology on elementary school levels. The latter, the Keystone Exams, does the same, with the addition of high-school test takers.
The 2022 analysis for Bucks County yielded New Hope-Solebury School District as the highest ranked local result. It landed at No. 18, a one-slot drop from the 2020 result of No. 17.
Central Bucks, Doylestown, came in at No. 36. This, too, represented a slide from the assessment two years ago, when it ranked No. 24.
2022’s top-ten school districts in the state were as follows:
|1||Upper Saint Claire||Allegheny|
|3||Fox Chapel Area||Allegheny|
