MHS Named - Washington Post
America's Most Challenging High Schools
HS ranked 1,225 nationally, 68th in Georgia

MARIETTA, GA -Washington Post America's Most Challenging High SchoolsThe Washington Post recently ranked Marietta High School (MHS) among the nation's 1,900 top public high schools in its list of “America’s Most Challenging High Schools.” Only 9 percent of the approximately 22,000 U.S. public high schools managed to earn placement on The Washington Post 2013 National High School Challenge Index.

“We are honored that Marietta High School, for the third consecutive year, was included among the nation’s finest high schools recognized by The Washington Post,” said Dr. Emily Lembeck, Marietta City Schools Superintendent. “This year, Marietta High School, for the fourth running, was also named one of the best high schools in the nation in U.S.News & World Report’s annual list of the best high schools in the country.”

America's Most Challenging High Schools ranks schools through an index formula that is a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year.
