CHS earns top designation

Camas High School was recognized as one of “America’s Top High Schools” in the January 2010 issue of US News and World Report. In producing these rankings, the magazine evaluated more than 21,000 public high schools’ state test scores and the comparative success of students from underprivileged and minority backgrounds; it also factored in a school’s participation in, and performance on, Advanced Placement examinations. The high schools that met key criteria fell into three categories of distinction: Gold, silver, and bronze. CHS is just one of 21 high schools in the State of Washington (out of our state’s four hundred and fifty three high schools) to earn this honor.
