CCHS Ranked As One Of The Most Challenging Schools In The Nation

 

The Washington Post’s education columnist Jay Mathews has been ranking the most challenging schools in the country and the D.C. region for 16 years. There are more than 1,900 schools on the America’s Most Challenging High Schools 2014 list. Noted in the national and local tables is the percentage of students eligible for government meal subsidies — a common benchmark for poverty — and each school’s average SAT score.

The top three national schools include American Indian Public Charter in Oakland, CA; Uplift Education North Hills Preparatory in Irving, TX; and Corbett Charter in Corbett, OR. The top DC area schools include: Saint Anselm's Abbey (P), Washington International School (P), and H-B Woodlawn.

The new question added to the survey this year reflecting a change in school cultures was whether each school has an 11-person football team. Jay Mathews writes that research indicates that high school sports, including football, give students valuable time-management and leadership skills.

No Summer Reading Required - CCHS Honors/Gifted and AP Courses Summer/Pre-Course Reading 2013-2014

Camden County High School has decided not to require pre-course reading for the 2013-2014 school year in the honors/gifted and AP courses.  In an effort to not dissuade students from taking more rigorous classes, the teachers have decided to embed the required reading into the course instead of asking the students to read before coming to class. 

Summer reading is still encouraged as it helps students maintain their reading level and increase their vocabulary.  A list of suggested, high-interest, books will be sent home with students before they leave for the summer break.
