Academic Performance

The Pennsylvania Department of Education recently released the 2015 School Performance Profile (SPP) for Cocalico High School.  This public site ( provides an academic performance score for public schools in the state. Each performance score is designed with several purposes in mind:

·       to inform the public of school performance,
·       to provide a building level score for educators as part of their evaluation system,
·       to allow the public to compare schools across the state, and
·       to give schools a methodology to analyze their strengths and needs.

Schools receive an academic performance score based upon many factors. Test scores, progress in closing achievement gaps, and degree of student growth over time are factored into the scoring. Graduation, promotion, attendance rates, and evidence of offering rigorous courses also factor into the calculation. In addition, schools may earn extra points beyond the 100-point scoring system for students who have earned advanced scores on the state, industry, and AP Exams.

Cocalico High School received an impressive overall SPP of 93.2. There are no 2015 School Performance Profiles for elementary and middle schools, due to the changes in testing that were implemented in the 2014-2015 school year. 

In addition, throughout the 2014-2015 school year, Cocalico School District experienced many successes and is pleased to share its accomplishments in the Annual Report 2014-2015.  Please click here to access the report.  Please direct any questions you have about the report to Dr. Stephen Melnyk, Assistant to the Superintendent for Secondary Education, at 336-1403.
