Marshfield High School has been ranked as the most academically challenging high school in the state by the Washington Post, due in part to the school's higher than usual number of Advanced Placement class offerings.
Those are classes in which students are eligible to earn college credit for taking them. The report also cites the school's continued effort to encourage students to challenge themselves academically.
Principal Steve Sukawaty says the distinction demonstrates the commitment both teachers and parents have to educating students. It's a community that values education and supports it. We are very fortunate here in Marshfield to have a public school system that works very well."
Stevens Point Area Senior High school also made the list of most challenging schools. They came in at number 27.
