List Of Best High Schools Includes Six From Idaho

Jun 21, 2012

Six Idaho schools make this year’s list of best high schools in the country, according to the Washington Post. North Star Charter in Eagle comes in at 82nd out of the 2,000 top schools listed. Coeur d’Alene Charter Academy shows up next at 116th place. All four of Boise’s traditional high schools made the list for the third consecutive year. Boise High was the best of those at 402nd place. Timberline squeaked in to the top thousand but Capital and Borah show up more than 700 slots further down. The Post ranks schools on the number of college level tests given divided by the number of graduates. The newspaper also factors in the percent of students who qualify for free and reduced lunch and how many passed college level tests. This year’s list covers the 2010-2011 school year.
