THE WASHINGTON POST SELECTS SPRING-FORD AREA SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL AS A ONE OF ďAMERICAíS MOST CHALLENGING HIGH SCHOOLSĒ
Spring-Ford Area High School continues to receive national recognition, most recently as the school made The Washington Postís 2016 list of Americaís Most Challenging High Schools.
The Washington Post ranks schools through an index formula thatís a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement (AP) exams and/or International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of at least 1.00 means the school had as many tests as they had graduates. SFAHS has seen an increase in the number of AP exams that students elect to participate in, making the total ratio 1.486.
This is the second year that Spring-Ford Area High School was named to The Washington Postís Most Challenging High School list. SFAHS ranked 1,853 out of nearly 20,000 public high schools across the nation. This is an increase from 2015, when Spring-Ford ranked 2,092.
KEYSTONE EXAM INFORMATION
Across the state, schools continue to prepare for the administration of Keystone Exams as end-of-course exams established by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE). The assessments are designed to provide information about the quality of our school programs, the progress of our students, and data for curricular and instructional planning purposes.
