Congratulations to Penn Manor High School students and staff for again earning top honors for their school from U.S. News & World Report.

The magazine’s 2023 Best High Schools issue, released August 29, ranks Penn Manor High School No. 2 of the 18 high schools in Lancaster County included in the report. That’s an improvement over last year’s third-place ranking.

This is the ninth year in a row that Penn Manor High School has earned a ranking of sixth or higher in Lancaster County.

In addition, U.S. News ranked Penn Manor 71st of the 750 Pennsylvania high schools evaluated in the report, an improvement over last year’s ranking of 74th.

Overall, Penn Manor earned a score of 89.29 out of a possible 100 points, for a national ranking of 1,893 among the 17,680 high schools included in the report.

“This is an example of the quality education the Penn Manor community provides for our students,” said superintendent Dr. Phil Gale. “Congratulations to the students, high school faculty and staff for the work they do to help students define and achieve their academic and life goals.”

The 2023 high school  rankings are based on graduation rates; students’ math and reading proficiency and whether test scores met expectations; the participation level and performance of students on advanced-placement tests; and the performance of “underserved” students, including low-income and minority students.
