Shorewood Highly Ranked in US News Best High Schools

US NEWS 2016U.S. News and World Report has again recognized Shorecrest and Shorewood High Schools for student achievement in their annual ranking of the nation’s best high schools. Both schools have been awarded a silver medal for the news magazine’s 2016 Best High Schools list.

Shorecrest is ranked 10th in Washington out of 477 high schools in the state, and 856th out of more than 28,500 high schools in the United States. Shorewood ranked 14th in the state and 1,038th in the country.

“It’s exciting to see this recognition of the students’ achievements and to know that our schools provide rigorous and relevant preparation for college, career, citizenship and life,” said Shorewood Principal Bill Dunbar.

“Having both our high schools receive such a prestigious recognition confirms our everyday experience in an outstanding learning environment that is supported by our students, staff and community,” added Shorecrest Principal Lori Longo.

Best High Schools ranking information for Shorecrest and Shorewood

To create the 2016 Best High Schools rankings, U.S. News worked with RTI International, a North Carolina-based research firm. High schools were evaluated in three stages:

1. Overall student performance on state-required tests. Students in the schools had to perform better than average to move the school to the next step.

2. How effectively schools educated their low-income and minority students.

3. School graduation rate and well they prepared students for college.

High schools that made it through this analysis were then eligible to be ranked nationally, in terms of college readiness. U.S. News determines the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work by analyzing student success in Advanced Placement (AP) which includes college-level courses.
