Several Local High Schools Recognized As Best in State

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - US News and World Report is recognizing several local high schools as some of the best high schools in the state.

The newsmagazine recently released its annual ranking of public schools in the country, based on a number of factors, including teacher to student ratio, advanced placement test scores, and state assessments in reading and writing.

Hanford High School ranked 36th, Prosser High School ranked 42nd, and Southridge High School ranked 46th.

Southridge Principal Steve Biehn said, "I am extremely proud to receive this recognition from US News and World Report. Everyone here at Southridge has had a hand in this. Our staff is very dedicated and this just validates the effort on everyone's part."

Biehn says the staff has worked hard encouraging students to challenge themselves and increase the number of students taking advanced placement classes and tests.
