Conestoga High School students are among the best best in the state when it comes to test scores.
According to the new Conestoga High School Profile posted on the TESD.org website and attached to this article as a pdf:
Nearly 50% of all students participate on at least one interscholastic athletic team and 15% participate in the intramural program. Over 90% are involved in at least one facet of a broad-based student activities program, which is notably strong in service and leadership, media production and publications, government and politics, and visual and performing arts.
When it comes to going to college after high school, Conestoga is a real estate agent's dream school for selling property in the district. It may not be as dreamy for state officials interested in preventing "brain drain" and an exodus of the best students in the state to other states.
According to the new profile report:
Nearly 95% of 2012 graduates chose to attend college after high school, with 90% of the class attending four-year colleges and 5% of the class attending a two-year college. Nearly 50% selected private institutions, with 45% attending colleges and universities outside Pennsylvania. Many graduates enroll in institutions rated "Most Selective" or "Highly Competitive" in college guides and publications.
The profile does not specifiy which guides and publications it refers to.
The full report lists every college attended by 2012 Conestoga graduates, the number of current students, and lists all the AP and Honors courses offered at the school plus many more factoids about the academic and extracurricular programs available at Conestoga.
