Newsweek magazine just published its 2010 list of the 1,623 best high schools in the country and River Hill High School, was the top HoCo high school at 158 but was beat out by eight other Montgomery County schools statewide. The topped ranked Maryland high school was Richard Montgomery High School in Rockville at 33, followed by Poolesville (59), Bethesda-Chevy Chase (63), Winston Churchill (75), Walt Whitman (85), Walter Johnson (95) and Montgomery Blair (139).
Other HoCo high schools that made the cut were Centennial (238), Mount Hebron (726), Glenelg (879), Reservoir (1119), Atholton (1124), and Hammond (1515).
Though 1,623 may seem like a long list, consider that this represents “only 6 percent of all the public schools in the U.S.”
Congrats and a big wag of the wordbones tail to the faculty and staffs.
