Earlier this year, the Washington Post published its annual list of the country's "Most Challenging High Schools." American Indian Public High School, AIPHS, was ranked number two on the list of California high schools. Now, and for some reason unknown to AIMS, the Post revised its list, and AIPHS has taken over the top spot.
The Accrediting Commission for Schools Western Association of Schools and Colleges is the latest academic body to publicly support AIPHS.
AIPHS is being recognized as one of the best 15 schools in the Bay Area for low income families.
By creating a college-going culture, charter schools are providing all students, regardless of background, access to higher education in California.
