Elmbrook high schools on nation's most challenging list

May 3, 2013

Both high schools in the Elmbrook School District earned a spot on the Washington Post's annual list of America's Most Challenging High Schools.

Out of more than 1,900 public and private high schools throughout the country, Brookfield East was ranked 674, while Brookfield Central came in at 837. Within Wisconsin, Brookfield East ranked seventh and Brookfield Central ninth.

For the past 15 years, the list has been compiled by a formula using the number of college-level tests - Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education - given at a school in 2012, divided by the number of seniors that graduated that year.
