The Washington Post's America's Most Challenging High Schools 2014 list has been announced. For the sixth consecutive year, Manhattan High School has been named to the list.

There are 10 schools from KS on the list - Blue Valley North, Blue Valley Northwest, Blue Valley West, Blue Valley Southwest, Blue Valley, Sumner Academy of Arts and Science, Shawnee Mission East, Shawnee Mission South, Manhattan and Shawnee Mission Northwest.

Principal Greg Hoyt states, "I am incredibly proud of our students and staff for achieving this tremendous recognition for Manhattan High School. This accomplishment is not possible without students that are willing to step out and enroll in challenging courses, dedicated faculty members that take on the preparation of these rigorous courses, staff members that encourage students to accept the challenge, staff members that organize and prepare for the hundreds of exams that are administered, and parents that support their children throughout the process."

Congratulations Manhattan High School!
