Congratulations — again — to Manhattan High School for having been included in a list of America’s best high schools for the third year in a row.
The list, formerly known as Newsweek’s America’s Best High Schools, is now called the High School Challenge and is compiled by The Washington Post. The Post surveys about 27,000 high schools and ranks them according to a formula that includes the number of Advanced Placement International Baccalaureate or Cambridge tests taken by all students and divided by the number of graduating seniors. Slightly more than 1,900 schools, including 10 from Kansas, made the grade.
MHS Principal Terry McCarty was right to describe the honor as “a direct reflection of the efforts and expectations of the school and the school community.”
Credit students — and their parents — faculty and staff at MHS for an achievement that ends the school year on the highest of high notes.
