U.S. News and World Report honors Lindbergh High School

Lindbergh High School has earned another national academic honor, this time from U.S. News and World Report.

The publication recently released its Best High Schools list, and Lindbergh High received a Silver Medal of Distinction, ranking eighth in Missouri and 832 nationwide. In all, 19,411 public high schools across the country were eligible for the rankings, and 4,707 received Gold, Silver or Bronze distinction.

“It is an exciting time to be a Lindbergh Flyer,” Lindbergh High Principal Andy Croley stated in a news release. “This award is a direct reflection of the hard work and dedication that our students and staff model every day.”

Lindbergh High scored above the state average in both algebra and English proficiency tests, and is one of the only high schools in the area to offer both Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses.

“Our goal is to help students reach their maximum potential,” Croley added. “If they can prepare for college and earn college credit in the process, it’s an added bonus.”
