Article Index

The U.S. News rankings include data on more than 21,000 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. Schools were awarded gold, silver or bronze medals based on their proficiency in algebra and English on state assessment tests and how well they prepare students for college. 

Red Boiling Springs High School students scored a 63 percent in English proficiency and a 56 percent in algebra proficiency.

“As director of schools I am extremely proud of Red Boiling Springs School,” said Director of Macon County Schools Tony Boles. “I would like to see all schools excel in academics, and Red Boiling Springs School has done a great job over the last three years.”

The bronze ranking is the highest honor that RBS School could achieve. To earn a silver ranking, a high school must offer Advanced Placement (AP) classes. While RBS High School does not currently offer AP classes, Director Boles says they may be offered in the future. 

This is the fourth time in the last ten years that RBS High School has received the U.S. News & World Report’s bronze ranking honor.

Congratulations to RBS High School students and teachers!
