The 2012 Report is in and dozens of Virginia, Maryland and D.C. schools made U.S. News & World Report‘s list of the highest ranking high schools.

To produce the report,  21,776 public high schools were analyzed in 49 states and the District of Columbia. This is the total number of public high schools that had 12th-grade enrollment and sufficient data, primarily from the 2009-2010 school year, to analyze. (Nebraska was the only state that did not report enough data and therefore was not evaluated for any part of the rankings.)

The rankings are based on state proficiency standards, how well they prepare students for college, as well as other factors.

.

In Virginia, top-ranked schools were clustered in Fairfax County, Falls Church and Loudoun County, with Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology rated second out of 100 nationally.

  6. Langley High School
  7. W.T. Woodson High School
  8. James Madison High School
  9. Oakton High School
  10. Stone Bridge High School

.

High schools in the Prince William County Public School (PWCS) Division continue to fare well in “The Washington Post” national survey that measures the effort schools make in encouraging students to take college-level courses.

.

All 10 Prince William County high schools rank in the top 7 percent of all high schools in the nation, according to The High School Challenge report published in The Washington Post. In addition, PWCS high schools set the all-time record for college-level test participation in 2010.

The High School Challenge, formerly called “The Challenge Index,” was developed by reporter Jay Mathews 13 years ago. The Washington area results were reported on May 22 in a special section of “The Washington Post,” and appeared in the “Local Living” section on May 26.

.

School ranking is determined by adding up all the Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate, and Cambridge (AICE) tests taken in a given year and dividing by the number of graduating seniors. Schools with a rating of 1.000 or above are in the top 7 percent of all 27,000 U.S. public high schools, says Mathews.

.

All 10 Prince William County high schools have a rating of 1.000 or above. Potomac High School ranks the highest of the Prince William schools with a challenge rating of 3.087 and numbers 41 out of the top 150 schools in the Washington area, followed by Osbourn Park (2.811), Hylton (2.540), Brentsville District (2.472), Battlefield (2.458), Woodbridge (2.445), Gar-Field (2.059), Forest Park (1.787), Stonewall Jackson (1.755), and Freedom (1.082).

.

In addition to Advanced Placement courses, Potomac High School offers the Cambridge Program for Mathematics and Physical Sciences which has an international, pre-university curriculum and examination system. According to Specialty Program Coordinator Courtney Wilkerson, 713 students are enrolled in the Cambridge Program at Potomac this year, up from 660 last year. The school has a student enrollment of 1,629.

.

“Our students truly are hard-working and love the challenge of Cambridge courses,” said Wilkerson.
“They see the value in taking rigorous courses and earning the Advanced International Certificate of Education.”

.

All PWCS high schools have a specialty program or area of academic concentration that is open to other students outside a school’s attendance boundaries. For information on specialty programs, visit the School Division Specialty Programs Web page.

.

In March 2011, Governor Robert F. McDonnell signed the “Cambridge” Bill (HB 1910) which requires institutions of higher learning to grant course credit for A and AS Level Cambridge Programme examinations. Prince William County Public Schools championed this measure, with top school officials testifying in Richmond during winter 2010-2011. This issue was among the Prince William County School Board’s 2011 Legislative Priorities.
