Newsweek Says MCPS Has 4 of the Top 100 HighSchools, None of them are Gaithersburg Schools

Newsweek Says MCPS Has 4 of the Top 100 HighSchools, None of them are Gaithersburg Schools

Four high schools in Montgomery County made Newsweek’s list of Top 100 High Schools in the Nation, including Richard Montgomery, B-CC, Wootton, and Churchill. There were no Gaithersburg schools that made the list, but I guess it’s nice to be in good company.

ROCKVILLE, MD—Newsweek magazine has ranked four Montgomery County public high schools in the top 100 high schools in the nation. All of the county’s eligible schools are counted among the top 3.5 percent in the country, according to the Newsweek list released on the Internet today.

The four top high schools and their rankings are:

  • Richard Montgomery—38
  • Bethesda-Chevy Chase—55
  • Thomas S. Wootton—58
  • Winston Churchill—94

Rounding out the top 110 schools are Walt Whitman—104 and Walter Johnson—109.

Dang, we didn’t even make the top 110. Let’s hope we do better next time, although I wouldn’t be surprised if Gaithersburg schools are just a little lower on the list. Either way, you’ve really got to give it up for Montgomery County Schools. Getting 6 high schools in the top 110 goes to show just how good the schools are in our area.

Hopefully the increased MCPS budget of “$133 million (6.4 percent) over the current FY 2009 Operating Budget of $2.07 billion” will improve our rankings next year.
