Century, Liberty, and Winters Mill High Schools have been recognized on Newsweek’s list of “America’s Best High Schools.”
The list, which is compiled in collaboration with The Washington Post, is featured annually on the magazine’s website and identifies more than 1,600 high schools. It is based upon the Challenge Index, developed by the Washington Post. It considers Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and Cambridge courses and tests, which have been shown to be good preparation for higher education.
According to Dr. Charles Ecker, Superintendent of Carroll County Public Schools, “We are proud and pleased that three of our seven high schools made the top 6% of schools in the country. I want to thank the staff, students, and parents for making this possible.”
