“The Newsweek High School Rankings assess schools based on a broad range of data to determine which institutions do the best job of preparing students for college. A star next to a school’s name indicates that it meets our Equity measure by helping low-income students score at or above average on state assessments.” – Newsweek.com
SPCHS earned the top ranking in Florida and earned the star for their work with low-income students.
“I am grateful to the innovative and talented SPC/SPCHS staff and faculty who inspire and support our students to excel,” said Starla Metz, Principal, St. Petersburg Collegiate High School. “Congratulations to our dedicated and hardworking students.”
