WAHS makes Newsweek list of best high schools
For the sixth consecutive year, Western Albemarle High School has made Newsweek's list of America's Top Public High Schools. The list is based on the ratio of Advanced Placement tests taken by its students to the number of total students at the school, and WAHS finds itself ranked 1,179th in the country on this year's list. This represents a tumble of sorts for the Warriors, having come in the top 500 schools five out of the last six years. Also falling in the rankings was Charlottesville High School, whom Newsweek ranked at #529 last year, only to miss this year's list completely. The top ranking Virginia high school was Arlington's HB-Woodlawn, coming in at #36.
