U.S. News & World Report has ranked Westfield High School as one of Indiana’s top public high schools. WHS is ranked seventh in the state out of 353 public high schools and received a silver medal for how well they are preparing students for college-level work.
“We are extremely proud of this national recognition,” said Mark Keen, superintendent of Westfield Washington Schools. “Our high school staff and students continue to raise the bar in student achievement. This recognition is also reflective of the hard work taking place throughout the district to prepare our students for high school and the opportunities beyond.
“Additionally, we know this continued success is a direct result of our community support,” he continued. “With their vote, through the referendum, we were able to keep key programs and offerings in place for our students preparing them for career and college readiness.”
Fellow Hamilton County high schools in the top 10 included Carmel (third), Hamilton Southeastern (eighth), Fishers (ninth) and Noblesville (10th).
WHS ranks 933rd nationally out of the nearly 22,000 high schools in 49 states and the District of Columbia that were part of the study. U.S. News released the fourth edition of the Best High Schools rankings, available exclusively online. Schools were awarded gold, silver, or bronze medals based on state proficiency standards, how well they prepare students for college, and other factors.
