Superintendent Kenny Garland announced Thursday, May 10, that Whiteville High School had been named number 57 among North Carolina’s Best High Schools by U.S. News and World Report. The high school was one of 102 high schools in the state to receive a “bronze medal” recognition in the magazine, out of 582 schools considered. There were only 33 silver and 17 gold recognitions in the state.

Garland said that U.S. News and World Report had based their recognition on how well students of all racial, ethnic and economic groups perform on standardized tests and also on graduation rates and college preparation opportunities.

“I think this is quite an honor,” said Garland. “We will continue trying to meet the needs of all our students. We know we have room to grow.”
