Davidson Academy Again Listed on Public Elites List

The Washington Post’s Jay Mathews again listed the Davidson Academy on his “Public Elites” list. The “Public Elites” list includes 27 schools from across America that were excluded from the main Jay Mathews Challenge Index list of the best high schools in America because, “despite their exceptional quality, their admission rules and standardized test scores indicate they have few or no average students”. The Challenge Index is the oldest high school ranking system in the country, beginning in 1998 in both Newsweek and The Washington Post.
