Pennsylvania's Best Public High Schools: New Rankings Released

note: A previous news alert directed readers to an incorrect link that contained New Jersey's top schools. We apologize for the error.

Conestoga Senior High School in Berwyn is Pennsylvania's best public high school for 2019, according to a new set of rankings released days ago by data compiler Niche.

Julia R. Masterman Secondary School (Philadelphia), Radnor Senior High School (Radnor), Harriton Senior High School (Rosemont), and Strath Haven High School (Wallingford) closed out the top five spots in the state. (See the full list below.)

The list of the best public high schools was released as part of Niche's 2019 K-12 rankings. Niche also released an analysis of the state's best school districts. You can see that here.

To arrive at the rankings, Niche said it looked at data from the U.S. Department of Education as well as test scores, college data, and ratings collected from Niche users. (You can read more about the rankings and the methodology here.)
