Marcellus makes Newsweek's list of America's best high schools

Marcellus High School was one of five schools in Onondaga County to be named to Newsweek/The Daily Beast’s list of America’s Best High Schools for 2014, which was released Aug. 27.

The news magazine and website started by analyzing public records for 14,454 public schools, and then culled the list based on reading/language arts and math proficiency. Finally, the list was pared down to the best 754 public high schools in the nation in the area of college readiness, which was determined by a school’s graduation rate (30 percent of score), college acceptance rate (30 percent), enrollment in advanced courses (30 percent), and
standardized test scores (10 percent.)

Marcellus was ranked No. 633.

The methodology behind this year's list marked a change from previous years. This time, Newsweek and the Daily Beast compared schools not only by graduation and college acceptance rates, but also examined their academic rigor, using Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advance International Certificate of Education (AICE) classes and test scores, as well as student performance on college admission exams.

In 2013, Marcellus was ranked 1,502. 

"I am proud of the hard work of our teachers and the academic performance of our students," Marcellus Superintendent of Schools Dr. Craig J. Tice said. "For the second year in a row, both have culminated in our inclusion among the best of the best on Newsweek's list."

The other Onondaga County schools that made the list were: Fayetteville-Manlius High School (320), Baker High School in Baldwinsville (556), West Genesee (606) and Jamesville-DeWitt (613).
