The Scranton Tribune recently reported that the Susquehanna Community School District has received two favorable educational rankings. The Sunday, June 17 edition of the paper contained a study comparing the potential of a school with the actual performance of that school. Thirteen variables, including test scores, instructional spending per student, socioeconomic factors, and attendance were evaluated at each school to determine the potential of the district students. A follow-up study of statistics revealed the actual performance of those students. The Susquehanna District showed itself to be performing at a level high above its predicted potential. The Susquehanna Community School District ranked second of the thirty-seven schools ranked. Montrose Area School District, another Susquehanna district, ranked first. Also, the September 25 edition of the Scranton Times/Tribune featured a front-page comparison of the SAT scores of the 37 schools. SCHS was ranked in the top ten of the schools involved in the comparison.
