Lindbergh one of ‘America’s Best High Schools’

Lindbergh High School’s mission is greatly substantiated this year by a new mark of distinction — making the list of “America’s Best High Schools” from U.S. News Media Group.

The top 100 high schools nationwide were awarded gold medals. Lindbergh High School was one of only five schools in Missouri to earn a silver medal.

The high school’s mission embodies the development of competent and caring graduates. This is accomplished through exceptional programs, services and personnel.

When judging for the best, U.S. News took the success of Lindbergh High School students into account.

More than 21,000 public high schools in 48 states were analyzed using data from the 2006-2007 school year. The judging methodology for the best high schools was developed by School Evaluation Services, a K-12 education data research business run by Standard & Poor’s. This methodology allowed U.S. News and School Evaluation Services to analyze how well high schools serve all students, not just those that perform at the top of their class.
