Newsweek published its list of the best high schools in America this week, and Newton North ranked 754 as compared to Newton South’s rank of 776.The rankings — which are based on the number of AP, International Baccalaureate and Cambridge tests taken — are really intended to identify the “principals and teachers who are trying hardest to raise the achievement of each child, with college as a useful goal” said the test’s founder, Jay Matthews, as quoted in the Wall Street Journal. Newton South High School has fluctuated from not being listed in 2003 to a ranking of 478 in 2006, 525 in 2006, 758 in 2007 and 776 in 2008.

Newton North High School was ranked 739 in 2003, 838 in 2005, 964 in 2006, did not make the ranking in 2007, and 754 in 2008. The year of 2004 is not included in the rankings.

According to Newsweek’s Web site, all schools on the list are in the top 5 percent of schools nationwide.
