Mount Si named a top high school
May 8, 2013
Mount Si High School was ranked among the highest performing schools in Washington in this year’s Best High Schools report from U.S. News and World Report.
The school earned a national and state ranking and was also awarded a silver medal, one of 45 schools in Washington to earn silver, according to the Snoqualmie Valley School District website.
The annual review recognizes top performing high schools based on math, reading and college readiness. Mount Si High School placed 38th out of 587 high schools in Washington, and 1,349 out of 21,035 nationally.
A three-step process was used to determine the best high schools. The first two steps were to ensure that the schools serve students well, using performance on state proficiency tests as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work, based on state exit exams and Advanced Placement exams.
