Four local schools made Newsweek’s list of the top 2,000 public high schools in the country.
Newsweek’s list ranked schools based on different measures such as average college-entrance test scores, AP scores and available classes, as well as graduation rates. Such criteria that would indicate college readiness of outgoing students.
Topping the quartet of area schools that made it was Phoenixville Area High School, which came in at 839.
“In all honesty, it’s an honor for Phoenixville to be recognized as one of the top high schools in the nation,” said Phoenixville Principal Craig Parkinson.
