Is That All?

So, according to an article in Newsweek, The Academy is ranked number 652 out of the 1,000 top U.S. Schools. I may be a little biased, but come on… I definitely think we should be ranked higher than this.

  1. Despite the fact that Newsweek seems to recognize the absurdity of the Mathews formula for determining “top” high schools, they went ahead and published it anyway. Clearly the measure examines a school’s success in recruiting the most academically talented and academically oriented students. It has little or nothing to do with a school’s success in meeting the needs and maximizing the potential of students with varied talents and interests. It was a truly unfortunate article for a national magazine to publish.

    Well, my one is ranked 11th out of the world, BUT if you change the statistical formula around, then we are the 24th …so I saw, screw them all! What do they know anyway? I really just dropped in to say thank you for coming to chez moi, and I hope you’ll come back….
    Oh wait. Was this high schools? So sorry, I was talking about universities. Although it is true (she confessed in shame) I attended the–at the time–number 5 ranked high school in the U.S. However, I hasten to add, only for a year and a summer!!!
    The rest of the time I was peacefully following my third world existence…probably herding goats….heh heh.
