Beaufort County High Makes Newsweek's "Best Schools" List

A Low Country school is making the grade. For the second consecutive year, Beaufort High School is one of just a few schools in South Carolina to be named in Newsweek magazine's Best High Schools in America list.

The school ranked 735th out of more than 27,000 public high schools in the nation. The magazine ranks schools according to their advanced placement and international baccalaureate tests.

"For us to make a place on this index is notable," said teacher Jane Calkins. "It's just a tribute to the very hard work the teachers that teach AP and IB put in."

Of course they note the students as well. This article will appear in the magazine's May 16 issue.
