MIDVIEW HIGH SCHOOL RANKED AS A U.S. BEST
Midview High School has earned the prestigious U.S. News & World Report Best High School award for ranking in the top 30% of nearly 18,000 schools nationwide and nearly 700 in Ohio. Midview ranked #5,628 in the U.S. and #206 in all of Ohio.
“We continue to be proud of the work our teachers and staff are doing in preparing our students for their future,” said Midview Director of Education Dr. Frank Major. “To be recognized nationally is a true honor and it definitely gives us a foundation on which to continue building.”
U.S. News releases their famed Best High School rankings every year, with schools vying for the recognition as a way of grading their own performance. The rankings are produced in conjunction with RTI International, a global research firm, which means U.S. News does not collect information directly from schools. Instead, the publication receives data from the College Board and International Baccalaureate, state assessment data, and the U.S. Department of Education Common Core of Data.
Schools are ranked on factors such as college readiness, college curriculum breadth, math and reading performance and graduation rate. Midview High School’s 97% student graduation rates the school above state average.
“There are many components that factor into how we grade ourselves and our successes,” said Midview Superintendent Dr. Bruce Willingham. “To be ranked in the top-1/3 of the nation is an important milestone for our school. We owe a debt of gratitude to our dedicated teachers and staff who have worked so hard to ensure our students are provided with a safe and healthy environment in which to learn. And, of course, our students and families who have stayed the course through thick and thin, making each of us proud along the way.”
