Manhattan High School Earns Award
Manhattan High School has been named to The Washington Post High School Challenge List for the fifth consecutive year.
Only eight Kansas high schools made the High School Challenge List:
"It is an honor to be make the list of the Washington Post Challenge ranking the best high schools in United States," states Terry McCarty, Manhattan High School Principal. "The accolades that Manhattan High School receives are a testimony to the faculty/staff throughout the entire school district, the community of Manhattan, and most importantly; the students. We acknowledge the efforts that are put forth to achieve and perform at this level. And we are proud of the accomplishments and successes earned by such effort."
The Washington Post annually surveys and ranks approximately 22,000 high schools across the country. Public schools are ranked according to a ratio devised by Jay Mathews: the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and/or Cambridge tests taken by all students at a school and divided by the number of graduating seniors. All of the schools on the list have an index of at least 1.000. Just over 1,925 schools—only nine percent of all the public schools in the U.S.—made the list.
