5/22/2008 - Local School Ranks High
T.C. Roberson High School ranks in the top 5 percent academically of all high schools in the country, according to Newsweek Magazine.
Schools across the country were ranked based on the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and/or Cambridge tests taken by students at a school in 2007. That total is divided by the number of graduating seniors. The schools in the top 5 percent have an index of at least 1.000. Roberson High's index score was 1.083 which ranks 1,281 in the country.
Receiving a place in this ranking is a compliment to the parents, teachers, and most of all the students of the Buncombe County Schools, stated Mr. Rob Weinkle, Principal.
