JSHS Earns National Ranking

The 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.
