Gibraltar among the state's top high schools

You cannot go wrong enrolling your kids into one of the high schools that call Door and Kewaunee counties home.


Of the approximately 460 schools ranked by the U.S. News and World Report in Wisconsin, seven of the eight school districts in Door and Kewaunee counties ranked in the top 250. The exception was Washington Island School, which because of their unique status was one of the dozens of schools not ranked by the publication. The U.S. News and World Report ranked more than 17,800 public high schools across the country by considering their college readiness based on Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) participation and test scores, college curriculum breadth, state assessment proficiency and performance, underserved student performance, and graduation rate.


Leading the way in Door County was Gibraltar, which was ranked 23rd in the state and the top 1000 in the country. The school boasted a college readiness score of 41.1 with no other school in Door and Kewaunee counties scoring above a 30. That’s partly because 50 percent of their students took at least one AP Exam and nearly 40 percent of them passed one of them. Algoma ranked the highest in Kewaunee County with a ranking of 134th and a college readiness score of 28.8. All eight schools boasted a graduation rate of at least 92 percent.
