JSHS Earns Newsweek National RankingWyomissing Area JSHS has been ranked #367 among the top 500 schools nationwide in preparing students for college. The ranking was based on two steps – Threshold Analysis and Ranking Analysis. A high school achievement index based on performance indicators (i.e., proficiency rates on state standardized assessments) using data reported by state to EDFacts at the US Department of Education was used for the Threshold Analysis. Through the Ranking Analysis the schools that met the threshold criteria were surveyed for additional data on college readiness indicators including the number of counselors; college acceptance and enrollment; SAT and ACT participation and performance; AP, IB, and AICE participation and performance; and dual enrollments.
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.
School will be in session on April 10 & 11 due to the closures for inclement weather on March 14 & 15.
