Newsweek recently published it's 2010 list of America's Best High Schools. Our local schools fared well on the list, giving us yet another reason northwest Arkansas is one of the most desirable destinations to live, work, and play! The list represents only 1,600 (or 6%) of our nation's best public schools based on performance in advanced-placement (AP) courses and tests. The article includes some interactive features and a profile for each school. Below are the rankings for the six area schools that made the list. The rankings put Har-Ber and Fayetteville in the top 2% nationally. Congratulations to the faculty & staff that make our schools such valuable institutions.
