JSHS Earns Newsweek National Ranking Wyomissing 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.
