Williston High School conducted P.E.R.T. testing on Tuesday, April 22nd and Wednesday, April 23rd. This test was given to students who are potential Dual Enrollment candidates. They will need to post a passing score on Reading (106), English (103), and Mathematics (114). Some of our students have taken the ACT or SAT and have made concordant scores to the meet college enrollment requirements. If they have not taken the ACT or SAT or have not met the score requirements they will be required to take the P.E.R.T. before being able to participate in Dual Enrollment.
Congratulations to Williston High School for making the Washington Post: America’s Most Challenging High Schools list for the second year in a row. Below is a brief explanation of the ranking. There are more than 22,000 public high schools in America and over 10,000 private high schools. Williston was ranked 1901 of 2063 schools on the list in America. Only 9 percent of all public high schools in America made the list.
We take the total number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year and divide by the number of seniors who graduated in May or June. I call this formula the Challenge Index. With a few exceptions, public schools that achieved a ratio of at least 1.00, meaning they had as many tests in 2013 as they had graduates, were put on the national list at washingtonpost.com/highschoolchallenge. We rank the schools in order of ratio, with the highest (21.91) this year achieved by the American Indian Public Charter in Oakland, Calif., which repeats as the top-ranked school.
“This is for students who drive cars to Williston High School campus. Mr. Gibbs and Mrs. Legler conducted a parking pass check on Friday March 14, 2014 and found 35 of 116 vehicles with no displayed parking pass. This is a safety and liability issue for Williston High School that must be addressed immediately.
Students who drive vehicles:
A. Purchase your parking pass, write your name on the back and get it displayed in the front of your car.
B. If you have purchased your parking pass, write your name on the back of the pass and get it displayed in the front of your car.
If you have a current parking pass and drive a replacement vehicle to school with no pass on it, come to Mr. Stone’s office to get a temporary pass for that day.
Vehicles parked in the student parking lot without a current year parking pass are subject to being towed at the expense of the owner of the vehicle.
