JSHS Earns National RankingThe Daily Beast ranked Wyomissing Area Jr./Sr. High School 317th in the nation among top public high schools. Six indicators including graduation and college acceptance rates; college-level courses and exams, percentage of students with free or reduced lunch, as well as SAT and ACT scores were used from school surveys to compare public high schools. Using 2012-13 data from the Department of Education, Daily Beast contacted U.S. schools who had graduation rates of at least 85 percent. Approximately 1,200 public schools completed their survey. Crunching the numbers further, the over 700 schools that made the final list were praised for providing an academically rigorous program for the most students while best preparing them for college.
WHEC Teacher Assignments
Recently, WHEC Parents/Guardians may have received a back to school packet in the mail with the intention of providing parents with important back to school information, list of school supplies and the classroom assignments. Unfortunately, some of the names of the new teachers and long-term substitutes were not provided, and for this we sincerely apologize for any confusion it may have caused. In an effort to correct this, teacher assignments will be available via the Home Access Center on Wednesday, August, 17 by the end of the work day.
In addition, the district is currently finalizing transportation information for the 2016 – 2017 school year. We will send another e-alert when transportation is finalized. This will be no later than August 24.
If you experience any problems logging in to the Home Access Center, on Wednesday, August 17, please contact Deirdre Emes at ext. 1140.
Thank you and we appreciate your patience.
