We congratulate Signature School in this distinguished award to be included as one of the best schools in the Nation. There is much to learn from this accomplishment. We wish Signature School all the best for the future.
Signature School named to Newsweek's top schools list
An Evansville charter high school has been included in a list of the top 100 high schools in the nation.
Signature School is ranked No. 26 on Newsweek's annual list, according to a news release. It is the only Indiana high school represented.
"This award is a tribute to the hard work and commitment to academics on the part of our students and staff," Signature School Principal Vicki Snyder said in the release. "It also brings well deserved recognition to the Evansville community."
The rankings are based on a ratio of the number of Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate tests taken by students last year divided by the number of graduating seniors.
Signature School opened in 2002 as Indiana's first public charter high school.
