Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

One Tampa Bay high school in Newsweek's Top 500



king_high.Newsweek's new system for ranking high schools isn't kind to those in the Tampa Bay area. Only one area school - King High in Tampa - made the magazine's Top 500, coming in at No. 293, according to the recently released results.

Under the old rating system (which put a premium on AP and IB participation rates), four Tampa Bay schools made the Top 100 last year (including Lakewood High's CAT program, at No. 16.)

More about the new rating system here and here.
