It can be difficult, in some ways, to live "in the shadow" of a metropolitan area. It often seems that the "city schools" and "city teams" get the lion's share of media attention, and that smaller schools often get the proverbial short end of the stick. Well, Woodford County High School has been making some noise in academic circles over the last few years, and that trend has continued in the Washington Post's 2011 High School Challenge. WCHS came in at #567 in the Post's rankings of more than 1900 high schools across the nation; of Kentucky schools in the rankings, WCHS ranked #8. This comes on the heels of their placement in last year's Newsweek Top 1000, and shows that we're on the right track. To teachers, staff and students (3 of whom are my daughters - *grin*), I say "Well Done!"
Did your school make the cut?
