Newsweek has named the high school one of the best in the country, one of several accolades for the school this year.

Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School for Government and International Studies was ranked the 14th best public high school in the nation by Newsweek and The Daily Beast.

Schools were ranked according to several benchmarks:

  • Graduation rate
  • College acceptance rate
  • AP/IB/AICE tests taken per student
  • Average SAT/ACT scores
  • Average AP/IB/AICE scores
  • Percent of students enrolled in at least one AP/IB/AICE course

Maggie L. Walker has also been ranked a top public high school by The Washington Post and earlier this year.
