MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - Manhattan High School has received top honors for the fifth year in a row.

The school has been named to The Washington Post High School Challenge List again this year.

The survey ranks almost 22,000 high schools across the country on the number of advanced placement, international baccalaureate, and Cambridge tests taken by all students at the school, divided by the number of graduating seniors.

Manhattan High Principal Terry McCarty says its an honor to make the list, and that the recognition is testimony to the faculty and staff, and most importantly the students.

Eight Kansas high schools made the list, only nine percent of all public schools in the U.S. made the list as well.
