Los Alamos High School reached gold medal status after being ranked 500th in the “Best High Schools in America,” out of 19,411 schools, according to U.S. News and World Report.
Achieving gold medal ranking also qualified Los Alamos High School for status as a 2014 STEM “Best High Schools.” To determine the top STEM (science, technology, engineering and math schools), U.S. News and World Report looked at the top 500 public schools in the nation and then evaluated their students’ participation and success in Advanced Placement science and math test.
Los Alamos High School was ranked 189th out of 250 high schools. STEM rankings methodology is based on the key principle that students at “Best High Schools” for STEM must participate in and pass a robust curriculum of college math and science courses. Data for this ranking was taken from the 2012 graduates.
School Board President, Judy Bjarke McKenzie said, “this ranking serves as proof that all schools in the district are headed in the right direction.”
