Subject: Newsweek Best High Schools List

Newsweek's "America's Best High Schools" list was recently released as a feature in their electronic magazine. Pensacola High School is #21 this year. Please visit      to view the article.
This ranking was determined by comparing the number of IB and AP exams taken to the number of graduates in 2009.

We were #54 last year.
