Calhoun County High
School received the U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools’ Bronze
Award for the seventh consecutive year.
To produce the 2013
U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools rankings, U.S.
News teamed up with the Washington, D.C.-based American Institutes for
Research (AIR), one of the largest behavioral and social science
research organizations in the
world. U.S. News & World Report analyzed 21,035 public high schools in 49 states
and the District of Columbia. A
three-step process determined the Best High Schools. The first two steps
ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using performance on
state proficiency tests as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past
the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare
students for college-level work.
This honor is a result
of collective efforts and teamwork among dedicated teachers, focused students,
and supportive parents.
