     In early May, we were pleased to hear that our high school was recognized as a bronze medal winner, based on the 2018 rankings of the U.S. News and World Report  “Best High Schools in the Nation”. We have previously received bronze medal recognition as one of our nation’s best high schools in 2007, 2008, 2012, 2014, and 2015; we received silver medal recognition in 2013.

     These awards are determined by analyzing information which is accumulated in a nation-wide study of 28,813 high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.  Our school was one of 144 Wisconsin schools that received recognition. The study was based on the following key principles: whether each school's students were performing better than statistically expected for students in that state; whether their historically underserved students performed at or better than the state average for historically underserved students; if schools met or surpassed a benchmark for their graduation rate; and college-readiness performance.

     Congratulations to everyone who is a part of our school community!  This award reflects the dedication of our students and parents, the quality of our staff, and the commitment of the community towards our school district. It is an honor for us to receive such high recognition from a nationally based organization.
