Central Columbia High School ranked #1 of the 245 rural school districts in PA

Earlier this week US News and World Report released its annual rankings of high schools around the state and nation.  Based on their criteria, Central Columbia High School ranked 32nd out of over 600 high schools in PA.  We ranked higher than all high schools in Northeastern and Central PA, with the closest geographical school who ranked higher being Hershey.

PA schools are designated as urban, suburban or rural.  Of the 245 rural school districts in PA, Central Columbia High School ranked #1.

This is a remarkable and laudable achievement.  Congratulations and thanks go to our students, faculty, staff, parents, and community. There have been numerous dates during my career that I have felt an overwhelming sense of pride.  This is one of them.
