This rank takes the Honor Roll rank and adds the percentage of students in the district eligible for free and reduced-price lunch into the formula. A district finishing high on this rank is smashing expectations, and any district above the median point is exceeding expectations.” The Montour School District was ranked 29th out of 105 Western Pennsylvania school districts by the Pittsburgh Business Times in 2012.
