PSSA Scores in Grades 3-8
RE: New Grades 3-8 PSSA Scores Dear Charleroi Area Families,

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) recently informed districts across the state that the number of students passing the annual PSSA tests statewide will be significantly lower than last year. See Letter from PA Secretary of Education Pedro Rivera. One reason for this decline is a realignment of the assessment to meet the more rigorous Pennsylvania Core Standards adopted in 2013 for English Language Arts and Mathematics.  

U.S. News & World Report Select Charleroi High School for its Best High Schools List

Charleroi Area High School is one of a handful of high schools in the state that has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report in its annual 2015 national rankings of U.S. high schools. Charleroi High School received a bronze award.

The magazine's annual Best High Schools Rankings awards gold, silver and bronze medals to public schools it deems best at preparing students for college. Rankings were calculated using standardized test scores in math and reading, as well as participation and success on Advanced Placement exams.

Charleroi High School students performed better than expected for the average student within the state, with consideration for the percentage of economically disadvantaged students, and its least-advantaged students performed better than similar students in the state.

The US News and World Report organization teamed with research firm RTI International to survey about 20,000 high schools in the United States.

Ed Zelich, Charleroi Superintendent commented, “We feel that this is an incredible honor and recognition for our entire school system. It is a direct reflection of our teachers, staff, parents and community support."
