**In Case You Missed It!
On June 8, 2009, Newsweek Magazine came out with the list of the top 1,500 schools in the U.S. and Rowland High School was on it!
Public schools are ranked according to a ratio devised by Jay Mathews: the number of Advanced Placement, Intl. Baccalaureate and/or Cambridge tests taken by all students at a school in 2008 divided by the number of graduating seniors. All of the schools on the list have an index of at least 1.000; they are in the top 6 percent of public schools measured this way.
