Best Public Schools in Zip Code 19050


The 7 schools located in the 19050 zip code area, all part of the William Penn School District, serve students from elementary to high school, but face significant challenges, including low academic performance, high poverty levels, and racial disparities.

While the Vision Academy Charter School stands out with the highest PSSA test scores and a 0% dropout rate, the majority of the schools in the district struggle, with most students performing well below state averages on standardized tests. For example, Penn Wood High School has proficiency rates as low as 4.6% in Algebra I and 12.7% in Biology, compared to state averages of 34.1% and 50.7% respectively.

Across the district, the schools serve predominantly African American student populations, with free and reduced-price lunch rates ranging from 95.21% to 100%, indicating high levels of poverty in the community. This suggests significant racial and socioeconomic disparities that need to be addressed through targeted interventions and investments to improve educational outcomes for all students in the 19050 zip code area.
