Newsweek and US News both released their list of America's best high schools for 2012. Both ranked Biotechnolgy High School in the top twenty. Newsweek ranked our school 20th (improved from last year's ranking of 25), on their list of 500 exceptional high schools in the nation. Newsweek reports that the ranking was developed on the following criteria:
The list is based on six components provided by school administrators: graduation rate (25 percent), college matriculation rate (25 percent), AP/IB/AICE tests taken per student (25 percent), average SAT/ACT scores (10 percent), average AP/IB/AICE scores (10 percent), and AP courses offered per student(5 percent).
We would like to congratulate the students, parents, and faculty, whose combined efforts have made this achievement possible.
