America’s Most Challenging High Schools- The Washington Post’s annual rankings of how successfully schools challenge their students.

The study ranks schools through an index formula that’s a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of 1.000 means the school had as many tests as graduates.

This year, six Utah high schools made the list, which represents the country’s top 12 percent of schools. The schools are Park City High School, Hillcrest High School, Timpview High School, Saint Joseph Catholic High School, InTech Collegiate High School, and Provo High School.
