Spruce Creek Hawks Soar High Nationally

spruce creek hawks port orange high schoolThere are many reasons to call Port Orange home, but one reason that continues to draw families is an array of excellent local schools, lead by the award-winning Spruce Creek High School. And for the 9th time since 2000, Spruce Creek has been recognized by Newsweek magazine as being of the the best high schools in the nation. Further, this popular Port Orange school, which houses an International Baccalaureate program, was named one of America’s Most Challenging High Schools by the Washington Post.

The Newsweek rankings are based on graduation and college acceptance rates; the number and passing rate for Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests; scores on college admissions tests and the number of students taking college level courses.

The Washington Post list compares the number of college-level course tests given and passed to the size of a school's graduating class and also factors in how many students qualify for free and reduced price school lunches.

Congratulations to the teachers, staff, and especially students, of Spruce Creek High School for this tremendous achievement and for helping the City of Port Orange continue to stand out as a highly desirable place to call home.
