Ark. schools on Newsweek's 'best' list

Posted By on Mon, Jun 14, 2010 at 3:56 PM

Newsweek is out again with its ranking of the country's best open admission public high schools. The list is based on the percentage of graduating seniors taking AP tests; the rationale for the ranking is here. Only 6 percent of the country's high schools made the list of more than 2,000 schools; 12 were from Arkansas.

In order of rank, they were:

93, Little Rock Central
411 Har-Ber Springdale
448 Fayetteville
589 Bentonville
843 Lake Hamilton
884 Southside Fort Smith
1037 Conway
1148 Rogers
1186 Greenbrier
1410 Jonesboro
1430 Springdale
1574 Pea Ridge

You can produce this list on this search page and then click on school names for more detailed profiles. Information includes percentage of subsidized lunch students and "pass" rates of students taking the test. (Fayetteville led the Arkansas schools in this category.)
