Newsweek and Washington Post Name QVHS One of Nation's Top Schools
Posted 05/31/2012 03:47PM

For the eighth year in a row, Newsweek (The Daily Beast) has ranked QVHS as one of the top 1000 high schools in America. Principal Andrew Surloff reacted to the news with great pride explaining that the researchers used a well-rounded approach with additional data compared to the rankings from previous years. “We are absolutely delighted to be listed among the top high schools in the United States of America.  This ranking is a testament to the outstanding work of our teachers, our highly capable students, and the overall commitment from our parents and our community to provide a top tier education for all QV students,” said Mr. Surloff.

In addition, The Washington Post published their rankings for the High School Challenge based on the “index” devised by Jay Matthews which divides the number of college-level tests given at a school in 2011 by the number of graduates that year. In addition, The Washington Post takes into consideration the percentage of students who qualify for subsidized lunches and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test, e.g. AP, test during their high school career, labeled equity and excellence, (E&E).

The district shares in Mr. Surloff’s pride and congratulations to the high school staff, students and parents.
