TC West Senior High School and TC Central High School Named Among Best High Schools in America!

The US News and World Report (click here for report) named Traverse City West Senior High School and Traverse City Central High School two of the top performing high schools in the state and nation this past week. TC West was ranked 14th in Michigan and TC Central was ranked 17th in Michigan out of 740 high schools. Only 55 high schools from Michigan made the national list. This ranking puts both high schools in the top 3% nationally. TCAPS was the only school district in our region to rank top 20 in Michigan’s top 20 high schools.

Best High School rankings are determined by:

  1. how each high school meets the needs of the entire student population,
  2. each high schools performance in relation to its peer group on State of Michigan assessments, and
  3. how well each high school prepared students for college.

The US News and World Report analyzed Michigan Department of Education data for all high schools in the state. Data included ACT and MME performance, Advanced Placement Performance and enrollment, and graduation rates. Read entire article
