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.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
