The Washington Post
North Canton Hoover High School was recognized by The Washington Post as one of the top challenging high schools in the state of Ohio. On a short list of the top 32 schools in the state, Hoover High School ranked 22 (as of 2013).
The Washington Post has been ranking the most challenging schools in the country for 15 years. From more than 22,000 high schools across the nation, the annual list spotlights more than 1,900 high schools, representing the top 9 percent of high schools based on total student participation in highly rigorous, college-preparatory coursework and exams.
The rankings are determined by an index score which is calculated by dividing the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of 1.000 means the school had as many tests as graduates.
Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs. lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E).
