Great Valley 10th-Best High School in Pa., Report Says

Great Valley High School ranked 10th in the state in the 2014 U.S. News & World Report rankings, released this week.

Perennial winner Julia R. Masterman Laboratory and Demonstration School in Philadelphia again ranked first.

Nationwide, Great Valley is the 613th best high school, U.S. News said.

Nearby, Conestoga High School was ranked No. 5 and Radnor High School came in at No. 8. Lower Merion High School was No. 15, while Harriton High School, also in the Lower Merion district, was No. 25.

Each year, U.S. News joins forces with the American Institutes for Research to evaluate schools on overall student performance on state-mandated assessments, as well as how effectively schools educated their black, Hispanic and economically disadvantaged students.

Performance on Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams is used to determine the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work. 

Schools were ranked within each state, as well as on a national stage.
