U.S. News ranks Severna Park as No. 8 school in Maryland

Severna Park High School came in No. 8 and was the among four Anne Arundel County public schools in the top 30 Maryland high schools on a list compiled by U.S. News and World Report.

The rankings were based on reports conducted by the magazine that measured: student/teacher ratios; how seniors performed on their Advanced Placement tests; and how they performed in the subjects of math and reading on state exit exams.

“I am very proud of our students and community for their continued commitment to education,” said Severna Park High School Principal Patrick Bathras in a release from the county school system. “It is an honor to be recognized, and exemplifies how SPHS students make their education a priority.”

Just outside of the Top 10 was Broadneck High School, which landed at No. 11. South River High School came in at No. 15 and Chesapeake High School was No. 28.

Winston Churchill High School in Potomac was named the top school on the list.
