L-S earns Silver Medal for 3rd straight year from U.S. News & World Report

Lampeter-Strasbug High School for the third consecutive year has earned a Silver Medal from U.S. News & World Report.

Lampeter-Strasburg was ranked 34th in the state of Pennsylvania and 1,338th at the national level. This puts the high school in the top 10 percent of the nation for our teacher to student ratio, AP college readiness, and proficiency levels in Math and Literature state assessments.

Last year, L-SHS was ranked 44th in the state (out of 687 public high schools, including charter and magnet schools) and 1,417th nationally (out of 21,035.) The HS earned the magazine’s National Silver Medal, which makes it one of 168 schools in PA to win a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal. Only seven percent of the high schools nationwide were given the Silver Medal and two percent were given Gold.

Each year, U.S. News & World Report releases its annual Best High Schools issue where high schools are ranked based on student achievement scores using state standardized test results, Advanced Placement, and International Bacaloriate scores.
