School Evaluation Services, run by Standard and Poor’s, recently reviewed high schools across the country. They considered over 20,000 schools and found only 561 that received their gold or silver ranking. Sheridan High School was honored at the Sheridan County School District 2 Board meeting last night as one of the Silver award recipients. Assistant Superintendent Tom Sachse says SHS was the only silver award winner in the state.
The top schools were recently published in U.S. News and World Report’s article on America’s Best High Schools. SHS Principal Dirlene Wheeler says the staff and students made the recognition possible.
Schools that made it through the first two steps of the evaluation were then judged on college-readiness performance. SHS excelled in that category. The award places Sheridan High in the top three percent of schools nationawide.
