They’ve done it again.
For the second time, Carvers Bay High School has been recognized as one of America’s best high schools by U.S. News & World Report.
The first time the school received the accomplishment was in 2012.
“This is an honor that rests on the hard work our students and faculty make every day of the school year through their academic efforts. Our faculty, staff, and students continually strive to improve in all areas of the high school experience through participation in summer enrichment and summer camp opportunities,” said Carvers Bay High Principal Richard Neal of the school being awarded a bronze medal by the media outlet.
According to the publication, the list was created by teaming up with the Washington, D.C. based American Institutes for Research (AIR), one of the largest behavioral and social science research organizations in the world.
AIR implemented the U.S. News comprehensive ranking methodology, which is based on the key principles that a great high school must serve all of its students well, not just those who are college bound, and that it must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show the school is successfully educating its student body across a range of performance indicators.
