|LISA placed 1st in Arkansas in Washington Post's High School Challenge|
Dear LISA family,
LISA Academy was placed first in Arkansas and 164th in the nation at Washington Post's High School Challenge.
America's Most Challenging High Schools ranks schools through an index formula that's a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of 1.000 means the school had as many tests as graduates.
