City Honors in at #11 for 2008

Newsweek has named City Honors High School number 11 out of 1,300 schools nationally. This year City Honors is the top ranked school in all of New York State, with a long Island school, Jericho High in Jericho, NY, coming in at number 20 on the list. Two other Long Island schools made it in just under the 50 mark.
City Honors was ranked at number 8 in 2007 and number 4 in 2006. Founded in 1975, City Honors is considered a college preparatory school and offers Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses to its high school students.
The Wikipedia overview can be seen here.
Often held up as the prime example of what all Buffalo Public Schools should be, City Honors weighs in far ahead of all of the others, with no other Buffalo Public School making the list. City Honors Principal is William A. Kresse.
In a separate article titled Small Schools Rising, Newsweek looks at the relationship between size of schools and overall success. Whatever City Honors formula is, it’s a shame it can’t be bottled.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
