For the first time ever, St. Michael-Albertville High School has been recognized by “U.S. News & World Report” as one of the nation’s “Best High Schools” in the publication’s Best High Schools 2015 rankings.
STMA earned the bronze medal in the award program based upon the school’s students performing better than statistically expected for students in the state and disadvantage students outperforming disadvantaged students in the state in math and reading proficiency. Schools were also ranked on college-readiness performance.
The U.S. News rankings included data from the 2012-13 school year on more than 21,000 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. Rankings are based upon two key principles: a great high school must serve all of its students well, not just those who are college bound, and that it must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show it is successfully educating its student body across a range of performance indicators.
