Three MPS schools named among Best High Schools in U.S.

MONTGOMERY, AL – Loveless Academic Magnet has been recognized as the 20th best high school and fourth best magnet school in the nation according to U.S. News and World Report magazine. Booker T. Washington High School and Brewbaker Technology High School were awarded Bronze recognitions.

"It is so gratifying to see these schools recognized for their hard work," said MPS Superintendent Barbara Thompson. "It is quite an accomplishment for schools in the Montgomery County Public School System to be named among the elite in the country. I am especially proud that we have the only Gold Medal winner in the state of Alabama. I am very pleased with the accomplishments of the students, faculty, administration and parents at these schools."

Board President Beverly Ross agrees, "This is the second year these schools have been recognized for this honor. We are thrilled that others have discovered what we knew all along. We have outstanding schools in Montgomery."

U. S. News and World Report analyzed academic and enrollment data from more than 21,000 public high schools to find the very best across the country. These top schools were placed into Gold, Silver, Bronze, or honorable mention categories. Of the 43 Alabama Schools named in the report, Loveless ranked the highest in the state as the only Gold Medal winner. Just 37 state schools join Washington and Brewbaker as Bronze schools.

Superintendent Thompson added, "Our parents and community members have much to celebrate."
