Race to the Top High School Commencement Challenge
The results are in! Thanks to your help we've narrowed it down to the top three finalists in the Race to the Top Commencement Challenge. The race was neck and neck all the way to the end with all six schools within half a point of each other. In no particular order:
Clark Montessori Jr. & Sr. High School in Cincinnati, OH
Kalamazoo Central High School in Kalamazoo, MI
Denver School of Science and Technology in Denver, CO
Thank you to the more than 170,00 people who weighed in and rated the six finalist schools. All six final high schools exemplify dedication to academic excellence and preparing students to help meet the President's 2020 goal of having the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.
President Obama will now choose which school to visit and deliver the commencement address at later this spring. Be sure to check back next Tuesday, May 4 to find out who wins!
