U.S. News and World Report has named Mount Si High School to its 2016 Best High Schools list, Snoqualmie Valley Schools Superintendent Joel Aune reported at the April 28 school board meeting.
The magazine’s report recognizes the highest performing public schools in the nation, based on an annual review of math, reading and college readiness data of thousands of schools in the U.S.
Mount Si High School has been named on this list for the fourth consecutive year, and has been further distinguished with the list’s Silver Medal for placing among the highest performing public high schools.
In Washington State, Mount Si was ranked 17th out of 477 high schools reviewed. In national comparisons, the school is 1,214th of more than 21,000 schools.
“This recognition offers one more glimpse of what a successful school can be measured on, we are glad to continually move up the ranking list each year. It is a motivator for staff and students, and a note-worthy reminder for our community that Mount Si High School is a top performing school,” said Mount Si High School Principal John Belcher.
