Montgomery County schools continued their trend of impressive rankings yesterday when eight county schools landed on U.S. News and World Report’s 2013 Best High Schools list.

Seven of those schools – Winston Churchill (52), Walt Whitman (59), Poolesville (99), Wootton (105), Richard Montgomery (106), Bethesda-Chevy Chase (128) and Montgomery Blair (247) – received a gold medal for placing as some of the top 500 high schools in the nation, while Wheaton (1,032) received a silver medal for its ranking.

The county led the ranking with the top six schools and seven of the top 10 schools out of the 58 total Maryland schools on the list.

“The schools on the U.S. News Best High Schools list should be proud of the work they have done to serve their students and prepare them for college and the workplace,” said Joshua Starr, superintendent of Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPSS). “I am pleased with the work that all of our high schools are doing, and we continue to focus on meeting the needs of all students so we can prepare them for the future they want.”
