West High rated as top school by 'Newsweek' magazine

West High School was selected as one of the top public high schools in the nation by Newsweek magazine’s annual ranking of high schools.  Only 14 high schools in Missouri were selected for the prestigious list.  Less than 6 percent of the country's approximately 27,000 public high schools managed to qualify for the Newsweek list.
The top 1,600 public high schools were selected based on the total number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or Cambridge tests given at a school each year and dividing by the number of seniors graduating in May.  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.
