LOUISVILLE, KY - Newsweek and The Daily Beast released their list of “America’s Best High Schools” and, once again, multiple Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) high schools were included. This month, principals at five schools received official congratulations on the accomplishment from the Kentucky Board of Education Chair David Karem and Kentucky Department of Education Commissioner Terry Holliday.
In a joint letter to the principals, Karem and Holliday said, “We commend you and the teachers at your school for their focus on college and career readiness.”
The following JCPS schools made the list:
- DuPont Manual
- Brown School
- Louisville Male
“I want to congratulate the students for their hard work and dedication to achieving their educational goals and to the teachers who helped make that happen,” said Dr. Donna Hargens, JCPS superintendent. “This recognition is a reflection of the district’s vision of all students graduating prepared to reach their full potential and contribute to our society throughout life.”
The list is based on six components: graduation rate (25 percent), college acceptance rate (25 percent), AP/IB/AICE tests taken per student (25 percent), average SAT/ACT scores (10 percent), average AP/IB/AICE scores (10 percent), and percent of students enrolled in at least one AP/IB/AICE course (5 percent).
