Lubbock High makes Newsweek's top list of high schools

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - For the third consecutive year, Lubbock High School has been selected by Newsweek magazine as one of the top high schools in the United States.

Each year, Newsweek names the best high schools in the nation based upon how the schools challenge students with advanced placement, college-level courses and tests. Approximately 1,600 schools, only six percent of the public schools in the country, made the list.

In addition to offering advanced placement courses, Lubbock High School is home to the only International Baccalaureate (IB) program in the region. The IB program is one of the criteria examined by Newsweek in formulating their list of top high schools.
