“Mac Among State’s Best”

That was the headline from the Peru Tribune regarding Maconaquah High School.  U.S. News and World Report ranked Maconaquah High School 44th from throughout the state of Indiana.  This competition focused on “College Readiness,” “Algebra Proficiency,” English Proficiency,” and “Student/Teacher Ratio.”  Maconaquah High School has historically had strong student participation in AP classes, ACP classes and “dual credit” classes, which improves our ranking for “college readiness.” 

 

The state of Indiana has a strong emphasis on “college and career readiness.”  Maconaquah High School, as evidenced by this national award, is clearly offering students opportunities that help make them ready for college and careers.
