Central Bucks is a suburban school district located in the heart of Bucks County, with administrative offices in Doylestown, the county seat. The district includes nine municipalities: the Boroughs of Chalfont, Doylestown, and New Britain; and the Townships of Buckingham, Doylestown, New Britain, Plumstead, Warrington, and Warwick. Central Bucks has an area of 122 square miles and a population of over 101,000.
Currently CB is the third largest school district in the state. Over 18,000 students are educated in our fifteen elementary, five middle and three high schools. An award-winning staff development program and careful planning for growth have resulted in a very consistent and stable district, even with such a large student enrollment. Based on the official Pennsylvania Value-Added Assessment System (PVAAS), CB ranks #1 among all public districts in Bucks County and #15 out of the state's 500 districts. 93% of CB students further their education at two and four year colleges, and CB has a graduation rate of more than 99%.
Central Bucks students also score very highly on the four "transition tasks" given at key points throughout their education. In third, sixth, ninth and twelfth grade all students are assessed on projects that test: mastery of knowledge, time management and written and oral skills.
Art, music, technology and physical education classes are provided to all students. Secondary students can choose from nearly fifty clubs or teams to enhance their skills and leadership abilities. Each high school also offers nineteen advanced placement classes.
98% of Central Bucks special education students are placed in the district. Currently, 11% of the student population receive these special education services, and an additional 7% receive gifted education services.
In the spring of 2005, Central Bucks received the "Ambassador Award" from the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce. This award is presented to organizations or individuals whose reputations cross county boundaries and attract attention to our community. Central Bucks is proud to be an Ambassador for our community, and proud to welcome you to our community.
