AMCHS Named One of America’s Best High Schools by Newsweek

A&M Consolidated was named one of America’s Best High Schools for 2010 recently by Newsweek. The list contains the top six percent of public schools based on participation on Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) exams.
Consolidated has made this prestigious list for five consecutive years.
Schools are ranked by their Challenge Index, which is calculated by dividing the number of students who take AP or IB exams by the number of graduating seniors. Since sophomores, juniors and seniors can all take the test, the Challenge Index can be over 1.0.

For the 2008 year (the most current AP exam data), over one-third of the junior and senior classes at A&M Consolidated took at least one AP exam, with nearly 83% of test takers scoring a 3, 4 or 5 on the exam. A score of three or above is eligible for college credit.
