Mr. Paul Edwards, Director of Secondary Education stated, "I think we take for granted by now how great our high schools are, and we just expect them to be ranked by U.S. News and World Report. But, this is a great testament to the hard work that our teachers and staff do every day to give a world class education to our students. Both of our schools do a tremendous job, and it is great to see them earn national recognition year after year!"
