Parkway West High Ranked Among Nation's Top Schools

Newsweek Magazine has ranked Parkway West High School number 788 among the 1000 best high schools in America. The public schools were ranked according to The Challenge Index, a ratio devised by Newsweek researcher Jay Mathews. According to Newsweek, the "Best High Schools List uses a ratio, the number of Advanced Placement (AP) and/or International Baccalaureate (IB) tests taken by all students at a school in 2004, divided by the number of graduating seniors. Although that doesn't tell the whole story about a school, it's one of the best measures available to compare a wide range of students' readiness for higher-level work."
