GHS NAMED TOP HIGH SCHOOL BY U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT
May 5, 2014
Granbury High School is one of the top high schools in the state, according to a new report from U.S. News & World Report.
“I am so proud of Jeremy Ross and his staff at GHS for the work they have done to transform our high school into one of the best in the nation,” commented Granbury ISD superintendent Dr. James Largent.
Only 300 Texas schools made the rankings, and GHS received silver medal recognition based on demographics, participation and performance on college readiness tests (SAT/ACT), and the number of students taking Advanced Placement and dual credit courses, and other criteria.
“Encouraging students to excel in college preparation, complete dual credit courses, and have a vision for a great future are all things that cannot be measured with a bubble test,” said Largent. “This is yet another example of authentic learning that is going on in GISD. This is also indicative of the quality of our K-8 education and educators we have in GISD that prepare young learners for high school.”
The ranking also puts GHS in the top 10% of high schools in the nation.
