Newsweek issues a yearly feature wherein they rank America’s Best High Schools. Just over 1600 schools – only six percent of all public schools in the U.S. – made the list. For the fifth consecutive year, A&M Consolidated High School has made this prestigious list. This year, they are ranked at #970 out of the thousands upon thousands of high schools across the nation.
The ranking is based on participation on Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) exams. Schools are ranked by their Challenge Index, which is calculated by dividing number of students who can take AP/IB exams by the number of graduating seniors for that year. For the 2008 year (this is the most current year for which there is AP exam data), over one-third of the junior and senior classes at A&M Consolidated H.S. took at least one AP exam.
In addition to this exceptional high school College Station has to offer, there are a number of recognized and awarded middle and elementary schools in the area that feed into it. College Station I.S.D. continues to foster an environment of academic challenge, success, and achievement. And our supportive community continues to encourage and celebrate our schools’ successes.
