Eight Baltimore County high schools rank among the nation’s top

Two high schools earn honors for high graduation rates

TOWSON, MD. – Eight Baltimore County high schools rank among the nation’s top, according to The Daily Beast’s Top High Schools 2014 list.

Released today, the list includes 735 public high schools located across the country and 15 in Maryland. The eight BCPS high schools and their respective rankings are:

  • Eastern Technical High School, 119 out of 735
  • George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology, 129
  • Hereford High School, 159
  • Western School of Technology and Environmental Science, 282
  • Loch Raven High School, 500
  • Towson High School, 521
  • Perry Hall High School, 527
  • Catonsville High School, 617 

Eastern Technical and Carver Center also earned spots on The Daily Beast’s top 100 list for graduation rates. 

“Baltimore County Public Schools is proud to start the new year with our high schools earning national recognition for their commitment to rigorous academics and college preparation,” said BCPS Superintendent  Dallas Dance. “These honors are only the first of many that the school system will achieve this year.”

This year, The Daily Beast invited more than 1,200 public high schools with graduation rates of at least 85 percent to complete surveys on student data. To determine this year’s top high schools, the online news source compared the schools’ four-year cohort graduation rates, college acceptance rates, Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) participation rates and college-entrance exam scores. The 2014 list reflects an emphasis on graduation and college acceptance rates, with these rates weighted most heavily among the considered indicators.
