The Pittsburgh Business Times - School District Ranking
In 2012, the Pittsburgh Business Times ranked the Bradford Area School District 242 out of 500 districts in its annual ranking of school districts across Pennsylvania.  The formula for the ranking takes into account three years of PSSA test scores in math, reading, writing, and science.  This was quite an accomplishment considering the fact that in 2009 the district was ranked 345 out of 500 districts.  In just four years, the district climbed dramatically in the rankings.  In the "Overachiever" ranking, we moved from 181 in 2010 to 112 in 2011.  The overachiever ranking is weighted by number of sub-groups and disadvantaged students.
