LANSDALE – North Penn High School (NPHS) has once again been named as one of the top public high schools in the nation by the U.S. News & World Report Best High School Rankings. NPHS is ranked at number 1,668 nationally and number 58 in Pennsylvania. Scoring a 90.65 out of 100, these rankings place NPHS in the top 10% of high schools across the nation. School rankings are determined by state-required test performance, graduation rates, and how well students are prepared for college.
“I am extremely proud that NPHS was once again named to the U.S. News & World Report’s Best High Schools,” said NPHS Principal Pete Nicholson. “Even in the face of great challenges, the teachers, staff, and students of North Penn rise to the occasion
and work hard to ensure a quality education for every student who walks through these doors.”
In coordination with North Carolina-based RTI International, a global nonprofit social science research firm, U.S. News ranked approximately 17,840 public high schools out of more than 24,000 reviewed. This is the count of public high schools that had a 12th
grade enrollment of 15 or greater, or otherwise had sufficient enrollment in other high school grades during the 2019-2020 school year to be analyzed. Rankings are calculated by six factors: College Readiness, College Curriculum Breadth, State Assessment Proficiency, State Assessment Performance, Underserved Student Performance, and Graduation Rate.
