Chester County is home to six of the 50 highest-scoring school districts in Pennsylvania for 2022, writes Ryan Mulligan for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
For the first time in seven years, Unionville-Chadds Ford did not take the top spot in both Chester County and the entire state. The 3,932-student school district ranked fourth in the state, two spots behind No. 2 Tredyffrin-Easttown.
Unionville-Chadds Ford has six schools, including Unionville High School, in its system, while Tredyffrin-Easttown has eight schools and a student population of 7,182.
Next on the list is Downingtown at No. 13, followed by Great Valley at No. 21. The list is rounded out by West Chester at No. 43 and Owen J. Roberts at No. 45.
Overall, half of the Top 20 school districts are from Philadelphia’s collar counties.
The Pittsburgh Business Times compiled the list by ranking close to 500 school districts across the Keystone State based on their students’ scores on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment and the Keystone Exams.
