What makes a high school great: ask Newsweek

I know that this is an older report, but I found two things interesting about this article:

1. No Indiana school made it in the top 100 high schools in the USA (according to Newsweek).

2. The way they initially figured the inclusion into The List:

With our Best High Schools list, NEWSWEEK recognizes schools that do the best job of preparing average students for college. By dividing the number of AP and IB tests taken at a school by the number of graduating seniors, we can measure how committed the school is to helping kids take college-level courses. We think kids at those schools have an edge, no matter their economic background. But many schools not on our list are also challenging students in innovative ways — proof that the national experiment in high-school education is just beginning. Ask yourself, “What is high school really for?” Then look around at the options available to today’s teenagers: diverse and compelling answers abound. Here are some of them.
