Lindbergh High receives national recognition

Lindbergh High School once again has been recognized by a national publication as one of the United States’ best high schools.

Newsweek released its list earlier this month, ranking Lindbergh High 350 out of 14,000 schools that were considered.

“It is a great time to be a Flyer,” Lind-bergh High Principal Andy Croley stated in a news release. “Lindbergh High School has a long tradition of excellence. These accolades reflect the hard work and dedication of teachers throughout our district, from preschool to high school. When that is combined with strong families, administrators committed to ongoing professional development, and outstanding students, it is a winning equation.”

Newsweek’s recognition comes on the heels of Lindbergh achieving a No. 1 ranking for overall achievement among traditional K-12 public high schools in Missouri.

The high school’s combined math and English language arts scores ranked higher than any other school in the state, and English language arts proficiency was second highest overall.

Lindbergh also has been named a top high school by the Daily Beast, the Washington Post and U.S. News and World Report.
