Newsweek has ranked Great Valley High School #359 out of the top 2000 best high schools in the country!
This is a move in the right direction for GVHS, since they came in at #525 in the same Newsweek rankings last year.
Here is how they explain their methodology:
“This year our ranking highlights the best 2,000 public high schools in the nation—those that have proven to be the most effective in turning out college-ready grads. 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), and percent of students enrolled in at least one AP/IB/AICE course (5 percent).
