Greenwich High School Earns Recognition
for Academic Excellence from Two Publications
US News and World Report recently identified Greenwich High School as one of the best High Schools in the United States. US News designated Greenwich High School as a “Silver” award winner, ranking it 2,589 out of 20,500 public high schools in the fifty states and District of Columbia. This ranking placed Greenwich in the top 13% of public high schools in the United States. According to the US News web site, “schools were ranked based on their performance on state-required tests and how well they prepare students for college” using four requirements. The first requirement was that Greenwich high school students needed to exceed expectations for students in New York State on state assessments. The second requirement was that underserved students in Greenwich High School (students from lower income families and/or minority students) needed to perform better than state average on New York State Regents exams. Greenwich High School’s high graduation rate (88%) exceeded US News third requirement of 80%. The final requirement that US News used to rank Greenwich as a “Silver” high school was based on the school’s ability to graduate students that are ready for college level coursework. According to the US News web site, “College Readiness” was calculated based on the percentages of each school’s students who took and passed AP exams. This is the second time the Greenwich High School has earned this award in the last ten years (2014 was the previous year).
The Albany Business Review (ABR) also recently ranked Greenwich High School as the ninth best public high school in the Capital Region. The ABR has been ranking school districts and elementary/high schools for decades. In the ABR’s most recent rankings, published in June 2018, Greenwich High School was ranked ninth overall out of the 84 public high schools in the 11 county Capital Region.
