Saline, Huron, Pioneer high schools listed among tops in nation
Three Washtenaw County high schools madeÂ Newsweek’s America’s Best High Schools annual list.
Saline, Huron and Pioneer high schools were among the schools listed in the annual report, which uses a formula based on academic results. It includes the number of students taking and passing advanced placement tests.Â
All three of those high schools have been on the list in previous years.
Saline ranked the highest among county schools, finishing 13th in the state and 1,073 overall.
“We’re very proud of our school,” Saline Superintendent Scot Graden said. “It’s a testament to our students and staff. Most of the students who come through our system arrive at high school well-prepared to deal with the increasing rigor. Our staff does a great job of pushing them to be even better.”
Huron was ranked 1,166 in the nation and Pioneer was ranked 1,290.
“We are very proud of all the high schools in the Ann Arbor district,” district spokeswoman Liz Margolis said. “Having Huron and Pioneer listed again in Newsweek is a tribute to the teachers and students at these schools who value and expect not only an exceptional education but a diverse and respectful learning environment.”
