Unionville High School was named the seventh best public high school in Pennsylvania recently by U.S. News and World Report, and the school also celebrated having 39 students named National Merit Scholars by the National College Board.

In order to be named, students must be among the top 2 percent in the nation, based on PSAT scores. That means 11.5 percent of Unionville’s students are among the top 2 percent in the nation.

“We are very pleased that Unionville High School has once again been recognized as offering a supreme education,” said John Sanville, superintendent of the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District. “These rankings are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teachers, students, administration, parents and the community to prepare our students for college and beyond. It’s a total team effort.”

The report came just days after the Pittsburgh Business Times ranked Unionville-Chadds

Ford School District as the number-one district in Pennsylvania. 

“Unionville High School is one of the best in the nation,” Sanville said. “We are humbled by the recognition and proud that we offer our students the greatest opportunities for success.”
