General McLane Ranks 5th Safest School in PA

Posted on March 31, 2016, in Events

General McLane High School was ranked the fifth safest public high school in Pennsylvania by an educational review website based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Niche.com—invented by students at Carnegie Mellon University—is a website that reviews and collects information about schools, neighborhoods and colleges across the country.

The site’s staff ranked the safest high schools in Pennsylvania and General McLane High School landed No. 5 on the list.

The 2016 Safest Public High Schools ranking provides a comprehensive assessment of the health and safety of a public high school. This grade takes into account key factors such as suspension, expulsion, law enforcement referral rates, as well as student and parent reviews, in an attempt to measure the overall safety of the school.

“We are pleased to be recognized by Niche.com as one of the safest schools in the state,” said Superintendent Richard Scaletta. “Our District places value on creating a school community that is safe and secure, including safety as one of our ten core values. The sense of security comes from the great relationships with students and from the sense of caring our faculty and staff demonstrate on a daily basis.”

Congratulations to everyone at the high school for providing a sense of safety and security that is recognized by parents and students!
