这篇文章探讨了西雅图Bellevue International School的情况...
Some good news for Bellevue high schools. Five Bellevue high schools made Newsweek's annual "Best American High Schools" list. They are (with ranking scores):
International School, 12
Sammamish High School, 369
In the past years, all above five schools made the top 100 USA High school list, however this year Newsweek modified their ranking criteria, scoring each school on the following self-reported data:
--SAT and ACT scores
--AP, IB and Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) exam scores
--number of such courses offered per graduate.
One interesting stat, outside Bellevue school district, Bainbridge was the ONLY other high school in Washington state to be listed in the top 500 high schools in USA. Bainbridge Island High School is 370th.
