Keystone Oaks listed high in school rankings

Wednesday, May 15, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

Keystone Oaks High School has been named one of the best public high schools in a ranking released in April.

The 2013 U.S. News Best High Schools Rankings listed Keystone Oaks High School as 69th out of 687 schools in the state and 2,258th out of 21,000 schools across the country.

“One of the neat things about it is the study recognizes how hard students and teachers are working and performing on the items that the rankings measured,” high school Principal Scott Hagy said.

The ranking, which comes from the U.S. News &d World Report and the American Institute for Research, evaluates schools based on student performance on state assessments and how well the schools educate minority and low-income students. In addition, student performance on Advanced Placements tests is used to gauge how well schools prepare students for postsecondary education.

“I think we do a fantastic job here in the district,” Hagy said. “It's sort of a district that's like a little secret — people don't give it enough recognition.”

Other Allegheny County high schools ranked in the study were:

• Upper St. Clair — seventh in state, 440th in nation.

• Mt. Lebanon — 11th, 510th.

• North Allegheny — 12th, 605th.

• Quaker Valley — 14th, 645th.

• Hampton — 18th, 685th.

• Fox Chapel — 25th 853th.

• South Fayette — 37th, 1,167th.

• Riverview — 45th, 1,438th.
