West High rated as top school by 'Newsweek Magazine'

West High School was selected for Newsweek Magazine’s annual ranking of the top public high schools in the U.S.  Only 13 high schools in Missouri were selected for the prestigious list.

The top 1,500 public high schools were chosen based on the total number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or Cambridge tests given at a school in May and dividing by the number of seniors graduating in May or June.  To qualify for the list, schools had to have at least half of its senior class take at least one IB, AP or Cambridge test in their junior year and at least one IB, AP or Cambridge test in their senior year.

Less than 6 percent of the nation's approximately 27,000 public high schools qualified for the Newsweek rankings.
