College Readiness

Washington PostWe have such exciting news to share!!!  The Washington Post just released its list of America’s Most Challenging High Schools, and (drum roll, please) Phoenixville Area High School is ranked #4 in Pennsylvania, #1 in Chester County, #573 in the country!!!  This ranking looks at a very simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year.  This has been an area of focus for the District over the past few years, encouraging all of our students to challenge themselves and to take more difficult courses.  Our teachers across the board have done an amazing job from the time our students enter Kindergarten all the way through their senior year in preparing them to perform at this level.  We couldn’t be prouder, and a hearty congratulations to all!
