Sound Off: Why Only One Western Kansas School in State’s Top Ten?
Over the weekend, two Wichita High Schools were named to the list of top-10 public high schools in Kansas in the 2013 rankings of the nation’s best high schools by U.S. News and World Report.
Liberal High School was the only Western Kansas school included in the state’s top ten. Hays High and Garden City from the Western Athletic Conference received bronze awards. Dodge City High received no award. Salina High schools received no award.
Does it surprise you that Liberal was the only Western Kansas school to make the top 10?
Why was no other Western Kansas School in the top 10?
