Eric Turman

Reading Senior High School

Reading High School was always categorized as one of the lowest performing schools in the state of Pennsylvania. Eric was determined that Reading would no longer be part of any state report that categorizes the school as low-performing. Reading High School has increased its graduation percentage from 53 to almost 70 percent over the past two years and the dropout rate has decreased from 13 to 5 percent. Over 70 percent of the graduates from 2012-2013, are studying on a college campus this school year. Under Eric’s leadership he has built a community of success where every teacher, administrator, staff and parent in the Reading School District has played a role in the success of the students. Eric is a strong leader with a shared vision that has carried him and his team to have a tremendous impact on the children attending Reading Senior High.
