America's Most Challenging Schools

Mississinewa High School has been named in The Washington Post's 2016 list of "America's Most Challenging High Schools" for the third time in the last four years. Mississinewa High School ranks 1645th nationally and 24th in the state of Indiana.

America’s Most Challenging High Schools ranks schools through an index formula that’s a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of 1.000 means the school had as many tests as graduates.
