Twentynine Palms High School has been given national recognition. Chanda-Lyn Frashetti has the kudos …..
For the first time, U.S. News and World Reports magazine has nationally ranked Twentynine Palms High School with a bronze medal, nationally ranking it with the best high schools in 2013. The criteria for being identified as one of the “Best High Schools” are that the school must serve all students well and must produce measurable academic outcomes that support this mission. Schools must attain performance levels that exceed statistical expectations, given the school’s level of poverty, they must exceed state averages and achieve proficiency rates on state tests for their least advantaged groups, and the school must prepare students for college, as measured on participation rate and performance of Advanced Placement exams. Morongo Unified School Board president Chris Proudfoot explains. “It really means they’re in the top schools nationwide, so really a great honor for Twentynine Palms High School.” For further information, visit www.usnews.com.
