The list of AMERICAS MOST CHALLENGING HIGH SCHOOLS is developed by taking the total number of Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate tests given at a school each year and dividing by the number of seniors who graduated. Public high schools that achieved a ratio of at least 1.000 were put on the national list. About 9% of U.S. public high schools made the list. Data from the 2012-2013 school year was used to compile the 2014 list which was released on April 7.
Washingtons ratio was 3.512 which ranked the school 340 among the 22,000 U.S public high schools, up from a national ranking of 427 in 2013. Kennedy moved up from a ranking of 633 in 2013 to 397 on the 2014 list. Kennedys 2014 index was 3.278. Kennedy is 2nd on the Iowa list. Four other Iowa high schools made the list including 5th ranked Decorah and 6th ranked Iowa City High.
The list of AMERICAS MOST CHALLENGING HIGH SCHOOLS is intended to identify schools that have done the best job of persuading students to take college-level courses and tests. The entire list can be found at washingtonpost.com/high school challenge.
