    In their latest list of America’s Most Challenging High Schools for 2016, The Washington Post listed Lamar High School at rank 277, once again placing it within the top 1% nationally. The ranking was based on a ratio called the Challenge Index, created by Washington Post education columnist Jay Mathews. The Challenge Index is calculated by adding the total number of International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), and Cambridge exams given at a school in a given year divided by the number of seniors who graduated in May or June of that year. This year’s Challenge Index scores were based on the data collected from Spring 2015.
