For the second year in a row, Lockport Township High School (LTHS) District 205 has earned the coveted distinction as one of Newsweek magazine’s top 1,300 high schools in the nation for 2008. LTHS was one of only 41 schools in the entire State of Illinois to receive this recognition.
The ratio is calculated by the number of Advanced Placement, International, Baccalaureate, and/or Cambridge tests taken by all students at a school in 2007 divided by the number of graduating seniors. All of the schools on the list have an index of at least 1.000, and they are in the top five percent of public schools measured this way.
Superintendent Garry Raymond, Ph.D., was happy to learn of the schools latest honor. “This is another proud day in the history of Lockport Township High School. The credit for this achievement belongs to our hard-working students and their parents and to our faculty, staff, administration, and Board of Education,” acknowledged Dr. Raymond. “The partnership that exists between home and the school will help us to continue the rich academic history of District 205 for years to come.”
