Marble Falls High School Principal, Manny Lunoff, was notified April 22nd that MFHS was listed in the top 15 percent of high schools nationally by U.S. World News & World in its release of the 2014 Best High Schools report. The top 15 percent ranking earned MFHS a national bronze medal distinction as a high-performing school based on state exam performance.
“I am extremely proud of Marble Falls High School and our school system,” said Superintendent, Dr. Robert O’Connor. “I know and appreciate all the effort that teachers and staff have made to help our students be academically successful (PK-12). The best practices our teachers implemented are working, and we appreciate the tremendous difference our teachers make in the lives of our kids and in our community!”
U.S. News & World started by reviewing more than 31,000 public high schools from 50 states and the District of Columbia before analyzing the sufficient data available for 19,400 of those schools. The study was conducted for U.S. News & World by the Washington, D.C.-based American Institutes for Research after analyzing more than 31,000 schools. Schools were awarded gold, silver or bronze medals based on their performance on state exit exams and internationally available exams on college-level course work (AP®/IB exams).
“We appreciate any recognition that we get for our efforts at Marble Falls High School,” said Lunoff. “We’ll continue to work to give students opportunities to be successful in the areas of academics, athletics, fine arts, career & technical courses, college readiness opportunities as well as other areas in which they can serve the needs of our school, district, community and the world.”
