Release Date: 1/16/2009 10:01:27 AM
Liberty High School has been ranked as one of the Top 5 High Schools in Maryland for 2009 by Business Week and GreatSchools.net under the category Best Improved Schools.
Business Week and GreatSchools.net, a nonprofit organization that rates schools and provides an online community for parents, worked together to identify the best overall public high school in terms of test scores, the best public high school with an economically disadvantaged population, and the best improved public high school. They also named the top public and private school in each state based on ratings submitted by parents on the GreatSchools.net website.
The Best Improved Schools were selected based on the most recent available state math, reading, and science standardized test scores for public schools. Math and reading were weighted twice as heavily as science. These schools showed the greatest grade-level improvement in test scores when comparing scores from the most recent year available to the previous year.
