Nine Montgomery 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 see which districts had the highest-scoring students in the last decade, analysis by the Pittsburgh Business Times, a sister paper of the Philadelphia Business Journal, compared data from 2010 to 2019 using standardized testing in Pennsylvania. No tests were given in 2020 due to the pandemic.
Lower Merion broke into the top ten as the seventh highest-scoring school district in the state. On an annual basis, the school district ranked seventh in 2011 but dropped to No. 10 in 2020.
Wissahickon and Upper Dublin broke into the top twenty at No. 16 and No. 18, respectively. Lower Moreland also made the top half of the list at No. 23.
Meanwhile, Colonial came in at No. 26, with Spring-Ford right behind in No. 27. Perkiomen Valley is next on the list at No. 33.
Finally, the list is rounded out by Methacton in No. 37 and North Penn at No. 45.
