This week the Clover Park School District announced three of its schools made this year’s U.S. News & World Report high school rankings.
Earning a place on this list shows CPSD’s schools are among the best in the area at providing opportunities for Lakewood students to prepare for future success.
The three schools are:
Harrison Preparatory School: Harrison Prep is the top ranked school in Pierce County, the 13th ranked high school in the state and 850th in the nation.
Lakes High School: Lakes is the 9th ranked school in Pierce County and 111th in the state.
Clover Park High School: Clover Park is ranked 22nd in Pierce County and 247th in the state.
“I am incredibly proud to see this kind of recognition of our amazing staff and students,” Superintendent Ron Banner said in a release sent out by the district. “Being ranked along with the best schools in our state and county shows the strength of our academic program districtwide and validates the work we do to provide great schools for our students.”
U.S. News and World Report completes this ranking annually to identify schools that, in the opinion of the evaluators, are best preparing students for college and careers.
The rankings were determined by six key indicators: college readiness (30%), college curriculum breadth (10%), math and reading proficiency (20%), math and reading performance (20%), under-served student performance (10%) and graduation rate (10%).
