Newton North High School Makes Newsweek Best High Schools List!

Newsweek has ranked Newton North High School #982 in its list of America’s Best High Schools.

The ranking lists the best 2000 public high schools in the United States that get kids into college.

The list is based on six components:

  • graduation rate (25 percent)
  • college acceptance rate (25 percent)
  • AP/IB/AICE tests taken per student (25 percent)
  • average SAT/ACT scores (10 percent)
  • average AP/IB/AICE scores (10 percent)
  • percent of students enrolled in at least one AP/IB/AICE course (5 percent)

To rank high, you need 100% graduation rates AND 100% of high school graduates college bound which is easier to pull off if your high school is small and homogeneous which Newton North High School is not.
