Warwick, Woodside recognized for challenging curriculum

(05/05/2015) -Two NNPS high schools are listed among the Washington Post's Most Challenging High Schools list for 2015. Warwick is ranked 27 and Woodside is ranked 66 in the state for offering students a challenging, rigorous curriculum. Both schools moved up in the state ranking this year.

The annual ranking, devised by education reporter Jay Matthews, determines the challenge index by taking the total number of Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate tests given at a school, and dividing it by the number of graduates.

The Challenge Index considers college test participation a better measure of school success than test scores. Research has found that students who take at least one Advanced Placement test do significantly better in college than similar students who did not take any AP tests.
