Campbell Nationally Ranked – 6th time in 3 years

Campbell County School District learned this week that Campbell County High School has received yet another national ranking. CCHS received a Silver ranking from U.S. News and World Report ranking CCHS 13th in the State of Kentucky only behind Fort Thomas and Beechwood in NKY and 1404 in the nation.  As such, CCHS has now received national rankings from all four groups (Newsweek, The Daily Beast, The Washington Post, and now U.S. News and World Report. A three-step process determined the Best High Schools. The first two steps ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using their performance on the math and reading parts of their state proficiency tests as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work.

This is the 6th National Ranking for the NKY Campbell County School System in three years. The district is also classified as a Distinguished/Progressing District on Kentucky State Assessments.
