Best Public Schools in Willow Hill, PA


The Willow Hill, Pennsylvania area is home to 3 schools that serve students from elementary through high school, all part of the Fannett-Metal School District. While Fannett-Metal Elementary School stands out as a top performer, the middle and high schools face more significant academic challenges.

Fannett-Metal Elementary School is a standout, ranking in the top 30% of Pennsylvania elementary schools and significantly outperforming the state on PSSA math and ELA tests. An impressive 93.1% of 4th graders scored proficient or better on the PSSA Science exam, compared to 74.1% statewide. However, the district's middle and high schools lag behind state averages on Keystone and PSSA exams, particularly in math, despite relatively high per-student spending across all 3 schools.

The stark socioeconomic differences across the schools are a likely contributing factor, with 100% of students at the elementary and middle schools qualifying for free/reduced lunch. This high-poverty student population may make it challenging for the secondary schools to translate the strong elementary-level performance into sustained academic success. Additionally, the overwhelmingly white student bodies, with minimal racial/ethnic diversity, may limit students' exposure to different backgrounds and perspectives.
