Parkway high schools receive tops marks from The Washington Post

WP logo 5/8/2017 -- All four Parkway high schools – Central High, North High, South High and West High – rank among "America's Most Challenging High Schools" according to The Washington Post. Our four high schools were among only 23 schools in the state of Missouri to be recognized.

America’s Most Challenging High Schools ranks schools through an index formula that’s a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of 1.000 means the school had as many tests as graduates.
