News and Announcements

US News Ranks CHAMPS as One of the Best High Schools in the Nation

On May 12, 2015, U.S. News published detailed information on more than 21,150 public high schools, including school-specific data on enrollment, student ethnicity, location, school type and results of state assessments and Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate tests. Using some of these data and a comprehensive methodology, the top-scoring 6,500-plus schools received a gold, silver or bronze medal - and in the case of gold and silver schools, a national numerical ranking.

In addition to the main national rankings, there is new numerical rankings for the top high schools in each state and for the best charter school rank on a national level.

I am pleased to announce that CHAMPS for the third year in a row is ranked among the best high schools in the nation. CHAMPS compares with other high schools based on U.S. News ranking criteria as follows"

Medal awarded Silver
National rank 1,675
State rank 355
Charter rank 188
