    Website Ranks Two Tri-Cities Schools in the top 100 of Washington State

    According to the just released 2015 Niche rankings, Hanford High School came in at rank 33 and Southridge is ranked 76th.

    Niche Best Public High Schools ranks 14,431 high schools based on dozens of key statistics and 4.6 million opinions from 280,000 students and parents.

    The website gives each school it's own report card breaking down different aspects of the school.

  • HHS made the Washington Post’s “America’s Most Challenging High Schools 2014” list

    The Washington Post’s education columnist Jay Mathews has been ranking the most challenging schools in the country and the D.C. region for 16 years. There are more than 1,900 schools on the America’s Most Challenging High Schools 2014 list. Noted in the national and local tables is the percentage of students eligible for government meal subsidies — a common benchmark for poverty — and each school’s average SAT score.

     The top three national schools include American Indian Public Charter in Oakland, CA; Uplift Education North Hills Preparatory in Irving, TX; and Corbett Charter in Corbett, OR. The top DC area schools include: Saint Anselm's Abbey (P), Washington International School (P), and H-B Woodlawn.

     The new question added to the survey this year reflecting a change in school cultures was whether each school has an 11-person football team. Jay Mathews writes that research indicates that high school sports, including football, give students valuable time-management and leadership skills.
