Carver High School emerges second in city on Pa. report card

Students and faculty at Carver High School of Engineering and Science celebrated the latest Pennsylvania School Performance Profile, which ranked their school as the second-highest academic performer within the district.

Principal Ted Domers congratulated students during a Friday afternoon assembly in the school’s gymnasium, but added that the change in rank came about because other schools scored lower than last year.

“Central and Masterman dropped 10 points. We stayed the same,” said Domers. He stressed that the state rankings are based on a broad range of test scores and other measures, including attendance, AP and SAT scores, and teacher impact.

Carver scored 90.6 on the SPP. Last year, it scored 90.9.

Central High School took the district’s top spot. Masterman slipped to third on the list, scoring 90.1.

The median score for the Philadelphia school district was 56.8.
