For the fourth time in five years, U.S. News & World Report magazine is ranking North Central High School (NCHS) as one of the best high schools in the nation. NCHS received a bronze award and was one of only 59 South Carolina high schools recognized this year.

“I am extremely proud of North Central High,” Kershaw County School District Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan said. “They set high expectations for students and believe that they can achieve them.”

U.S. News evaluated more than 20,500 public high schools across the country and selected fewer than 30 percent for recognition.

“To be recognized for the third straight year and four of the last five years is amazing,” NCHS Principal David Branham said. “I am extremely proud of our school and all the North Central area schools who are a part of this success. Our Knight Family works hard to make sure our students believe that they can achieve any goal in life. This recognition is evidence that our school is committed to this vision. Great job, Knights!”

The national education news and information magazine looked at each U.S. high school’s overall performance on state exams and whether they performed better than expected based on their student poverty levels. It also evaluated schools on how well they performed with low-income, black and Hispanic students.

The magazine also compared schools’ graduation rates to a national standard, and judged them on how they prepared students for college using participation and performance data from Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams.
