The Washington Post rated Marshfield High School #2 in Wisconsin for America’s Most Challenging High Schools.

From WUWM Milwaukee Public Radio:

The Washington Post has ranked what it considers the top high schools in the country when it comes to challenging their students. Topping the list of Wisconsin schools is Eastbrook Academy (#175 national ranking), a small voucher school on Milwaukee's north side. Next is Marshfield High School (#346) in Marshfield, with Milwaukee's Rufus King (#504)  placing third. About 30 other Wisconsin high schools made the national list, with most located in Milwaukee County or surrounding counties. The Post bases its rankings on the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests the school administers, divided by its number of graduates. 

How great is this??? Well, based on the U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics. (2012). Digest of Education Statistics, 2011 (NCES 2012-001), there are 24,651 public high schools in the United States. To put this into perspective, a ranking of 346 puts us in the top 1.4% of all high schools.  

Marshfield High School has been recognized by the Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council (WAPAC) as a Pacesetter School in Advanced Placement.  Based on the below criteria the school received a level 1, 2, or 3 award.

Level 1 % taking exams > 30% and % of scores 3 or above > 70%.
Level 2 % taking exams > 20% and % of scores 3 or above > 65%.
Level 3 % taking exams > 10% and % of scores 3 or above > 60%.

The impetus of this recognition is to recognize access and excellence regarding Advanced Placement.  Pacesetter schools have provided impressive student access to AP courses and posted excellent AP exam results.  The Pacesetter Award is unique to Wisconsin and emerged from WAPAC members who felt that many outstanding school districts in our state lacked recognition for AP excellence. In particular, WAPAC was interested in highlighting districts that are seldom recognized for their excellence in AP. The data for the WAPAC award is readily available at http://wise.dpi.wi.gov/about-data-ap-exams. WAPAC’s goal is to focus on increasing participation by recognizing Pacesetters or leaders in AP to encourage other districts to promote both access and excellence.

The Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council is comprised of Wisconsin secondary and collegiate educators who are dedicated to expanding access to AP coursework and rigorous learning for all college bound students.
