Top 750 High Schools
Tuesday, May 27, 2003
Top 750 High Schools, based on average number of AP courses per student and such, and excluding schools who select more than half their students via merit (grades, tests, etc.).

The scary thing is just how many of these high schools were right around me: North Hollywood High, Van Nuys, Taft, Westlake, Marshall (yay Mom and Dad (alumni)), L.A.C.E.S., S.O.C.E.S., Venice, and a bunch of others. There is a Grant in California on the list, but it says it's in 'Valley Green', a city not even yahoo Maps knows about. Is this my Grant, in Van Nuys, in the San Fernando Valley? Do I get validation?

My sister and my oldest friend each work at schools on the list, which seems highly skewed towards California, probably because they push AP tests harder there. Heck, I took seven... One of them for a subject I never even studied in school (US Government).

If you like it, please share it.
