After students took the "A-P" - or advanced placement tests - local high schools ranked in the top 10-percent in the state according to a recent U-S News and World Report ranking.

 

Oregon has about 278 high schools and Summit is ranked 12th - Bend High is16th and Mountain View is 30th.

 

Bend La Pine School District spokesperson Vicki van Buren says they are a leader in the state in many things.

 

"Our three high schools do perform very well in comparison to other high schools across the state and we're very proud of that. i think its because of the work we do and the quality teaching that we're able to provide our students."

 

Van Buren says the ranking is especially significant because they are compared to some schools that pay their students to take the optional "A-P" test, and district students choose to take it on their own.

 

She adds that this information will be added to the district and high school profile- that is sent to colleges with student transcripts.
