Pennsylvania Private Schools by County

Pennsylvania's economy is powerful and diverse. Former agricultural state, it experienced an important commercial, industrial and mining development from the nineteenth century, and has long occupied a preponderant place in the national economy. Pennsylvania today resides as one of the country's major industrial and mining states, despite a sharp decline in these activities since the early 1970s; the state's gross annual income per capita is also one of the highest in the country.

Pennsylvania is one of the first national coal producers, thanks to gigantic deposits of fatty coal and anthracite in Appalaches. The other mineral resources are oil, natural gas, iron ore, lead and zinc.

Agriculture and especially breeding (cattle, poultry) are very prosperous sectors, due to the proximity of the large urban markets of the North American megalopolis - from Washington to Boston. Cereals, mushrooms (the first national producer), potatoes and fruits are the most significant crops.

The main industrial sectors are heavy metallurgy (mixtures, steel works), mechanics (machine tools), chemistry, the pharmaceutical industry, glass, agri-food (dairy products), electronics, textiles (confectionery) and paper . Pennsylvania remains an important producer of crude steel as well, although volumes have declined considerably. An important diversification of the industry - made necessary in particular by an increasing unemployment rate - has been taking place these last decades.

Located on the great inland waterways and close to the coal and iron ore deposits, Pittsburgh represents one of the most important steel and glassmaking sites in the country. The Philadelphia benefits more than a wide range of industrial productions and has one of the first ports in the United States for sea freight.

Pennsylvania protects numerous museums - most famously the Philadelphia Museum outside Art - and important historical sites: the Independence Hall Philadelphia where the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were prepared and written; the Carpenter 's Hall, theater of the first continental Congress in 1774; the Valley Forja Historical Park and the Gettysburg National Military Park.

Solebury School - New Hope

The Solebury School with currently 235 students was founded in 1925 and is located in the city of New Hope in Pennsylvania. Above all, creative and independent thinking, as well as the respect between students and teachers are important to the school.

The main goal of the Solebury School is to make the students enjoy learning.

The school curriculum is very extensive and therefore addresses the different needs and talents of the young people. In addition to numerous courses, students can choose between two dozen advanced and AP courses. The teacher / student ratio is 1: 6 and the average number of classes is 11 students. Students are known as an individual and not as a face in a lot of students. The teachers can deal with each individual student well, get enough attention and do not get lost in the crowd.

Classes take place from 8 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. and in the afternoons all students are obliged to take part in a sporting activity or other extracurricular activities such as theater, clubs or the like. This should give the students free head, develop team spirit and the opportunity to make new friends.

There is a lot to do on the weekends. Whether it's a trip to New Hope, the mall or a bonfire in the evening, there's always something to do. Students can canoe or bike ride the Delaware River. The Poncono Mountains are only 1 hours away and invite you to go skiing and snowboarding, and New York City and Philadelphia are also not far away and can therefore be visited occasionally.

The school's art offering is particularly large, with over 20 art classes on offer. Art is particularly highlighted one week a year with the art festival. Concerts take place, as well as workshops and artists visit the school.

New Hope is home to around 2,500 residents. On the weekends, many tourists visit the city due to the many restaurants, art galleries and antique shops. The city is also known for its lively nightlife. New Hope was once a popular place for Broadway shows, now the city theater is to be reopened. The city is located between Philadelphia and New York City and is right on the New Jersey border.
