HOPE — Hauser Jr.-Sr. High School again has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the nation’s best high schools.
The magazine examined 21,776 public high schools across the nation and concluded that, in Indiana, 102 deserved inclusion on the annual list, according to the magazine website.
Hauser was among 73 bronze medal schools in the state. Twenty-seven won silver-medal recognition and two earned gold-medal recognition.
The rankings take into account a high school’s quality of service to all of its diverse student populations and educational success as measured by quantifiable academic outcomes. The rankings also emphasize the importance of fiscal responsibility.
Hauser, which has won bronze at least three times previously, achieved accolades again this year for its 16-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio, its 98 percent student proficiency in algebra and its 87 percent student proficiency in English, all while dealing with a tight budget.
Kathy Griffey, superintendent of the Flat Rock-Hawcreek School Corp., said making the list is an honor that testifies to Hauser’s top-notch educational program.
“We’re very proud,” she said.
