AUC National Ranking 2014: #19 in USA by The Washington Post
Proud to be Archimedean!
The Archimedean Upper Conservatory received a US National High School Ranking of #19 (25th in 2013), by the Washington Post America’s Most Challenging High Schools 2014. The ranking is based on an index that measures the depth of the College Preparatory Program, graduating rates, and University placements, as well as the index of Free and Reduced Lunch for each school during the 2012-2013 school year. Another interesting fact is that AUC has the 8th highest SAT average score among the top 20 schools in this ranking. This statistic suggests that AUC has better top-ranked University placement results than most of the top 20 schools.
This is an important accomplishment for AUC.
America’s Most Challenging High Schools
The index score is the number of college-level tests given at a school in the previous calendar year divided by the number of graduates that year. Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs, lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E). A (P) next to the school’s name denotes a private school.
