Jackson Hole High Gets High National Rating

JHHS

The U.S. News & World Report last week released their Best High Schools rankings for 2013 showing Jackson Hole High School as the top in the state.  The report includes comprehensive profiles on more than 21,000 public high schools and rankings of the nation’s 4,805 highest-scoring schools.  The ranking places Jackson Hole High School 1159th in the nation and was awarded the survey’s silver medal.  The report says at Jackson Hole High School, students have the opportunity to take Advanced Placement® course work and exams. It lists the AP® participation rate at Jackson Hole High School as 44 percent.  The top school in the country was The School for the Talented and Gifted located in Dallas. The magazine lists the methodology to determine the nation’s best public high schools as being comprised of three steps. The first two steps ensure that the schools serve all their students well, by using the state proficiency standards as the measuring benchmark. The third assesses “college readiness,” or the degree to which schools prepare their students in both participation in and passing of college-level course work using the Advanced Placement® or International Baccalaureate tests as the standard.
