Of the 19 schools on the Maryland state list, eight were Montgomery County Public high schools. Seven of those MCPS schools were among the top ten in the state, according to a new measuring system created by Newsweek to rate the success of a high school in “turning out college-ready (and life-ready) students.” The results of the publication’s revamped national rankings were released online on June 20th, along with an explanation of the methodology used to rank the schools. Newsweek no longer publishes a national ranking based on Jay Mathew’s High School Challenge Index that appears in The Washington Post.
