All Three FH High Schools Rank Among the Top in the Nation

Forest Hills Eastern, Northern and Central High Schools recently were named among the top public schools in America according to a report by NewsweekNewsweek, and affiliate company, The Daily Beast, analyzed high schools throughout the country to find exemplary ones and released their findings of the top 2,000.  According to the study, the organizations were looking to find schools that best prepare students for college.  The study looked at indicators of college readiness such as graduation rates, participation in college-level classes via advanced placement and international baccalaureate programs, and acceptance into a two- or four-year college program.

“Forest Hills Public Schools take great pride in doing what’s best for all students and helping all of our students reach their fullest potential,” said Dan Behm, superintendent.  “We continue to strive to move our educational standards forward and implement best practices in education.  Although the study just examined high schools, academic excellence can be found throughout all of our buildings in the district.”

All three Forest Hills high schools made the top list in 2012 as well.
