H-B Woodlawn received the highest ranking of all Washington-area high schools on Newsweek’s latest list of the top high schools in the country.
H-B Woodlawn placed 27th on the annual list, which ranks high schools by dividing the number of Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate tests taken by students by the number of graduating seniors.
Washington-Lee and Yorktown both cracked the top 100, ranking 62nd and 82nd in the nation respectively. Wakefield High School ranked number 375. Wakefield is in the process of having its current facility replaced with a new, $105 million building.
“We have improved dramatically over the years and we are continuing our work to find other ways to improve and enhance the instructional program for students,” said Superintendent Dr. Pat Murphy in a statement.
