Issue Date: May 2, 2013
On April 22, US News and World Report issued its annual rankings of the best high schools in the United States. US News teamed up with the Washington D.C. based American Institutes for Research, one of the largest behavioral and social science research organizations in the world, to compile the rankings. A total of 21,035 public high schools in the United States were analyzed, including 459 from Wisconsin. After the results were tabulated, Crivitz High School ranked #22 in Wisconsin.
A large amount of data was used to formulate the rankings. Essentially, schools were ranked in a 3 step process. The first step determined whether each schools students were performing better than statistically expected for the average student on state proficiency tests in reading and math. The second step determined whether the schools least-advantaged students were performing better than average for similar students in the state. Finally, schools who made it through the first two steps were then judged on college-readiness performance indicators.
Crivitz High School was one of seven northeast Wisconsin schools to rank in the top 30 schools in the state. It was also the smallest school in that group, making the students, faculty, and administration very proud of this accomplishment, stated Jeff Baumann, Crivitz High School Principal.
