Olentangy Earns High Marks from National Media

IMG_4141The US News & World Report has released its annual rankings of the best high schools in the nation and once again Olentangy’s high schools are ranked among the best. In fact, the report ranks the district’s three high schools as the first, second and fourth best among central Ohio high schools and within the top 10 best high schools statewide.

The report analyzed achievement data from more than 31,200 public high schools in all 50 states.  The rankings compare categories including student-to-teacher ratios, college readiness, as well as math and reading proficiency. U.S. News & World Report determined its college-readiness scores by examining the percentage of seniors who took and passed Advanced Placement (AP) exams. The math and reading proficiency scores reflect student performance on the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT).

Olentangy Liberty High School (OLHS) is ranked first in central Ohio and fifth in the state in this year’s report. It earned the 175th best high school in the national ranking, with a college-readiness score of 65.7 percent, a math proficiency score of 4.4 out of 5 and a reading proficiency score of 4.2 out of 5.

Olentangy High School (OHS) is ranked second in central Ohio and seventh in the state. It earned the 181st spot in the national ranking, with a college-readiness score of 65.1, a math proficiency score of 4.4 out of 5 and a reading proficiency score of 4.1 out of 5.

Olentangy Orange High School (OOHS) is ranked fourth in central Ohio and ninth in the state. It earned the 208th best high school in the nation title, with a college-readiness score of 63.2 percent, a math proficiency score of 4.4 out of 5 and a reading proficiency score of 4.1 out of 5.

Washington Post.webThe report comes just days after the Washington Post released its 2014 list of “America’s Most Challenging High Schools.” All three Olentangy high schools received the highest scores in central Ohio and ranked within the best in the state on that list, too.

According to the Challenge Index, Olentangy Orange High School (OOHS) ranked third in central Ohio, sixth in the state and 285th in the nation. Olentangy Liberty High School ranked fourth in central Ohio, eighth in the state and 297th in the nation. Olentangy High School ranked sixth in central Ohio, 15th in the state and 489th in the nation.

The Washington Post ranks schools based upon Challenge Index scores.  The index is calculated by taking the total number of college-level tests (such as Advanced Placement exams) given at a school and dividing that by the number of graduates for that particular year.

Congratulations to all three high schools!

Four OLHS Artists Are “All-State”

Four artists from Olentangy Liberty High School (OLHS) have been selected to display their work at the 2014 Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition.  The exhibition is the most competitive and prestigious art show in Ohio. The art was chosen from 12,000 regional entries statewide. State jurors then select 300 for the actual exhibition.  OLHS had 12 peices go to the state judging round, and four students were selected for the final show of top 30 works. Being chosen for this show is the high school art world’s equivalent to being named all-state in sports.
