The magazine judges schools based on how extensively they challenge students with advanced curriculum courses.
Newsweek takes the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or Cambridge AICE tests given at a school each year and divides it by the number of seniors graduating in May or June. Nationwide slightly more than 1,600 schools, or only 6 percent of public schools, made the mark.
Notice the advanced curriculum courses statement. Challenge your students, and they will do better. give them ordinary courses, and you will get excellent ordinary students.
