US News and World Report has ranked the Best High Schools for several years using a combination of reading and math proficiency as well as the school’s ability to educate all students regardless of their socio-economic status. Using the same measures, 2021 marks the first year that the news agency has also ranked the Best Elementary Schools.
Forbes Road Junior/Senior High School (FRJSHS) and Forbes Road Elementary School (FRES) have both ranked among US News and World Report’s Best Schools in Pennsylvania for 2021. FRJSHS has ranked #167 out of 711 high schools, or the top 23%. FRES has ranked #347 out of 1,752 elementary schools in Pennsylvania, or the top 20%. FRSD performed particularly well in this region, performing in the top 11% of elementary schools and the top 7% of high schools in Fulton, Bedford, and Franklin counties.
