Radnor Township School District ranks 4 among 500 school districts in Pennsylvania, based off of their performance on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) Exam, according to the Pittsburgh Business Times.
The Pittsburgh Business Times recently released its 2012 Guide of Western Pennsylvania Schools. The guide lists the school district rankings on the PSSA scores statewide.
The formula for the ranking takes into account three years of PSSA test scores in math, reading, writing and science, according to The Business Journals. Three years of scores are considered, with the current year given the most weight.
Radnor School District ranked above all other Delaware County school districts. It ranked just behind neighboring Tredyffrin-Easttown School District.
Radnor held the same statewide rank the previous year.
