The Washington Post has once again come out with their America's Most Challenging High School index based primarily on the number of college level courses offered. More detail on how the rankings are determined can be found here.
The index score is the number of college-level tests given at a school in the previous calendar year divided by the number of graduates that year. Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs. lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E). A (P) next to the school's name denotes a private school.
Once again, Tahoma High School made list with state scores in the chart below. At the national level our index of 2.234 placed us 919th. Congratulations to our students, staff, and leadership at Tahoma High School. Just think, in three more years it will say MAPLE VALLEY instead of Covington!
The chart below shows the growth in our program during the years of this ranking.
