The state Department of Education recently revised a key academic measure – the School Performance Profiles – of many schools in the state. The rankings for nine Penn Manor School schools did not change, but Manor Middle School’s designation improved.
The middle school is now considered a “Reward (High Progress)” Title I school for closing the achievement gap among students in reading and math and improving overall standardized test scores in both subjects.
Manor Middle’s numerical School Performance Profile rating – 87 points out of a possible 107 – did not change. The ratings for Penn Manor’s nine other schools also were unchanged, averaging 89.5 points. According to the Department of Education, schools that score 70 or above are considered to be “moving toward success.”
Here are the SPP scores for other Penn Manor schools:
- High school – 91.8 (ranked No. 5 of the 16 high schools in Lancaster County)
- Marticville MS – 86.1
- Central Manor ES – 81
- Conestoga ES – 89.1
- Eshleman ES – 84.2
- Hambright ES – 78
- Letort ES – 86.3
- Martic ES – 88.2
- Pequea ES – 86.9
