LAS VEGAS - April 21, 2015 - PRLog -- On April 19, 2015, The Washington Post named the The Meadows School (TMS) the fifth most challenging private school in the U.S., and the No. 1 school in Nevada, public or private. Schools were chosen through an index formula using this 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. The Washington Post’s Challenge Index was designed to identify schools that have done the best job in encouraging the general population of students to take college-level courses and tests.

“We feel extremely honored to receive this recognition from The Washington Post, and it would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our talented faculty and students,” said Jeremy Gregersen, head of school at TMS. “We strive to challenge our students every day so that they can achieve their full potential both academically and as leaders of the community.”

In 2014, 162 TMS students sat for 434 AP examinations. The school’s AP pass rate, the number of students who received a score of three or above on the exam, was 87 percent, compared to 51 percent in Nevada and 59 percent nationally.

TMS boasts a 100 percent four-year college placement track record and has produced numerous National Merit and Presidential Scholar recipients. The school, started by Mayor Carolyn Goodman, celebrated its 30th anniversary this past year.
