Two PPS elementary schools earn ‘Best Elementary School’ title from U.S. News & World Report

Churchland Elementary School and Churchland Academy Elementary School have both been recognized as “Best Elementary Schools” in the country by the U.S. News and World Report, which has ranked more than 47,000 public elementary schools across the country. This is the first time U.S. News & World Report has ranked elementary schools.

According to the outlet, schools were assessed based on student proficiencies in mathematics and reading that were measured by state assessment tests. Additionally, while half of the ranking formula was the data, the other half was the results in the context of socioeconomic demographics. In other words, U.S. News & World Report wrote, “the top-ranked schools are high achieving ones that succeeded in educating all of their students.”

To qualify for “Best Elementary School” honor, schools had to place among the top 30 percent in the state.

This is not the division’s first time being highlighted by U.S. News and World Report. As a reminder, Churchland High School has been named a Best High School honoree for two consecutive years.
