Wyoming High School listed in Top 100 Best Public High Schools in the US

Wyoming High School has been named one of “The 100 Best Public High Schools in the U.S.” According to data from the National Center for Education Statistics and research by TheBestSchools.org, Wyoming High School ranked 48. The only other high school in Ohio to make the list was Bexley High School, near Columbus, ranked 62.

Wyoming High School was cited for offering a well-rounded education, including a focus on social responsibility, critical-thinking skills and independence. Ninety percent of Wyoming High School students enroll in the two dozen Advanced Placement courses offered. Wyoming High School was also recognized for its strong fine arts curriculum and offerings, including courses in computer graphics and photography, as well as music opportunities in band, orchestra and choirs.

“Wyoming High School has a rich history of excellence,” said Principal Ashley Whitely. “While we embrace our traditions, we also strive to hone our practices to help students reach their fullest potential.”

The rankings were based on strength of curriculum, participation rate in Advanced Placement classes, state test scores, SAT and ACT scores, graduation rate, performance of disadvantaged students, student-teacher ratios, student reviews, percentage of college bound students, and facilities, clubs and activities.
