8 West Michigan High Schools Among Top College Prep Schools In Country
The Washington Post has created a list of the top college prep public high schools in the United States. The list ranks the top 1,900 high schools. 8 West Michigan high schools have made the list.
Determining the top college prep schools is a difficult task with many factors to consider.
The Washington Post explains their list:
The formula is simple: Divide the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or other college-level tests a school gave in 2010 by the number of graduating seniors. While not a measure of the overall quality of the school, the rating can reveal the level of a high school’s commitment to preparing average students for college.
There's no perfect method, but this is a good start. Congrats to all of the West Michigan schools on the list!
Here are the 8 West Michigan schools:
- Black River - Holland
- East Grand Rapids
- Forest Hills Central
- Mona Shores
- Portage Central
- Portage Northern
