Two school districts located in Delaware County were ranked among the top 10 school districts in Pennsylvania, writes Ethan Lott for Philadelphia Business Journal.

The rankings are based on a new report that looked at state standardized testing scores.  The data was compiled by the Pittsburgh Business Times.

Radnor School District, located in Delaware County, and Unionville-Chadds Ford, which lies in Delaware and Chester Counties, both made it into the top 10.

They were joined by Lower Merion and Tredyffrin-Eastown School Districts.

Lower Merion ranked highest, at No. 3. Radnor School District placed fourth edging up from a No. 6 ranking last year.

Tredyffrin-Easttown was No. 5 and Unionville-Chadds Ford, which held the No. 1 spot for seven years in a row, slipped to fourth place last year and fell to No. 10 this year.

In total, 492 of the state’s 500 school districts were ranked.
