BJHS moves up on Newsweek list

Once again, Madison’s high school has earned its spot on a list of the nation’s best learning institutions.
Bob Jones High School is number 808 in Newsweek’s list of the best high schools in the country. Last year, BJHS was ranked 1,200.
In a memo sent out to the community, assistant principal Dr. Julie Finley credited Principal Robby Parker and the rest of the school’s staff for “bettering our curricular offerings and improving methods of instruction.”
“Different years have had a different focus,” she said. “From providing greater resources for special needs, to building rigor across all curriculums, we’ve identified our needs, set a plan and worked that plan. Gains have been monitored and revisions made where needed so that student performance continues to climb.”
The Newsweek honor isn’t the only one the school has received. It was also named a CLAS Banner School for Alabama. It has also earned honors from the Washington Post and US News and World Report.
“Our Madison City Board of Education has given us amazing support, and we’re celebrating together. Receiving this affirmation and knowing the impact it will have on our students’ future opportunities is really exciting,” Finley said.
The highest ranking school in the state was Jefferson County International Baccalaureate, which was ranked second in the country. Other high scorers were Auburn High School (354), Mountain Brook High School (376), Spain Park High School in Hoover (984) and Grissom High School in the Huntsville system (1181.)
