Lindbergh High again makes Newsweek list

Lindbergh High School has been named one of “America’s Best High Schools” by Newsweek magazine for the sixth consecutive year.

Nine area high schools made the 2010 list, which ranks the best schools in the country based on how hard schools work to challenge students with advanced placement college-level courses and tests.

Lindbergh High ranked 781 among the roughly 1,600 schools listed.

“I am proud of our high school students, teachers and staff for all their hard work,” Lindbergh High Principal Ron Helms stated in a district news release. “This Newsweek honor for the sixth year in a row recognizes that ongoing effort.”

Ranks are determined by a ratio of the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or Cambridge tests taken to number of total graduating seniors.

Lindbergh High School made Newsweek magazine’s “America’s Best High Schools” list for the third consecutive year.

The annual list compares more than 26,000 of America’s public high schools.

This year, Lindbergh High ranked 759. Lindbergh is in the top 5 percent of public schools in the nation.

Newsweek ranked more than 1,200 public schools according to Jay Matthew’s ratio of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and/or Cambridge tests taken by students at a school, divided by the number of graduating seniors. Last year, seven Lindbergh students received IB diplomas and 630 AP exams were administered.

“AP and IB courses provide a challenging education and prepare students for college,” Lindbergh Principal Ron Helms stated in a news release. “Newsweek’s rating is an honor and a tribute to the hard work of our students and teachers.”

Lindbergh High is one of 10 in Missouri to make the list. A complete list is available in the magazine’s May 28 issue.
