U.S News & World Report’s Best High Schools!!!!!

Mabel-Canton High School has been named one of the America’s Best High Schools according to the recently released U.S. New and World report!  Mabel-Canton earned a bronze rating!  The review was extensive and this is a high honor bestowed upon our school.  Please read below to get a glimpse at the process Mabel-Canton High School went through for this recognition:
To produce the 2015 Best High Schools ranking, U.S. News & World Report teamed with North Carolina-based RTI International, a global nonprofit social science research firm.
RTI implemented the U.S. News comprehensive rankings methodology, which is based on these key principles: that a great high school must serve all of its students well, not just those who are college bound, and that it must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show it is successfully educating its student body across a range of performance indicators.
It started by reviewing 29,070 public high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.  Some of those schools had to be eliminated from consideration, mainly because there were too small to be analyzed.  This reduced the count to 19,753, which is the total number of public high schools across the country that had high enough 12th grade enrollment and/or sufficient enrollment to other grades during the 2013-14 school year to be eligible for the rankings.
National Rankings:  A three step process determined the Best High Schools.  The first two steps ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using their performance on this math and reading parts of their state proficiency tests as the benchmarks.  For those schools that made it past the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work.
Step 1: The first step determined whether each school’s students were performing better than statistically expected for students in their state.
Step 2: For schools passing the first step, the second step assessed whether their disadvantaged students (black, Hispanic and low-income), were outperforming disadvantaged students in the state.
Step 3: Schools that made it through the first two steps became eligible to be judged nationally on the final step; college-readiness performance.  Using Advance Placement or International Baccalaureate test data as the benchmark for success, depending on which program was largest at the school indicated (since M-C does not participate in IB classes, we were eligible for the bronze medal rating).
Bronze Medals: An additional 3,990 high schools that passed the first two steps in the methodology were awarded bronze medals.  A bronze medal school either does not offer any AP or IB courses or its college readiness index was less than the median of 19.42 needed to be ranked silver.
Mabel-Canton Schools continue to shine in all areas of education; students ARE the priority!  
Congratulations to Mabel-Canton High School for this very prestigious honor!!  We are proud of you!!
