CHS named among most challenging schools

Once again, Carrollton High School is ranked among the most challenging high schools in the nation by the Washington Post, which released its 2017 list this spring. For the seventh consecutive year, CHS was noted for providing rigorous opportunities for all students.

America’s Most Challenging High Schools ranks schools through an index formula that’s a simple ratio: The number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of 1.000 means the school had as many tests as graduates. Carrollton’s ratio of 1.490 ranks CHS at 1,892 nationwide, joining only 12 percent of schools in the nation to qualify for the list. 

“Academic rigor is key to a student’s success in high school,” said David Brooks, CHS principal. “Helping our students achieve at a high standard opens a lifetime of opportunities for them.”
