What are the 18 Most Challenging
High Schools in Missouri?
14 of the most academically challenging high schools are right here in St. Louis.
Challenge produces excellence in all areas of life perhaps none more important than education. These schools were selected by the Washington Post recently as having the most rigorous curriculum.
How Did the Washington Post Make the Selection?
Jay Matthews, an education columnist for the Washington Post, has compiled a list for several years focusing on schools that have a high percentage of students taking college level classes. According to the article they used a simple index score.
“The index score is the number of college-level tests given at a school in the previous calendar year divided by the number of graduates that year. Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs.Lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least on college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E). A (P) next to the school’s name denotes a private school.”
