MANHATTAN, Kan. (KSNT) — Manhattan High School made The Washington Post’s ‘America’s Most Challenging High School’ list for the 9th year in a row.
The Washington Post put out the ranking of more than 2,000 high schools this month. Public schools are ranked based on a formula with the number of advanced placement tests given each year divided by the number of graduating seniors.
Ten Kansas schools made the list and the only one in Northeast Kansas was Manhattan High.
“Because I have taken the test and passed a lot of the tests, I’m exempt from a lot of early level college courses,” Senior, Chloe Dorst said. “So, I can skip on to like sophomore, or even junior level classes.”
