Newsweek has ranked three area schools among its top 1,000 nationwide for 2012. Kettle Moraine ranked 459th while Arrowhead was 510 and Hamilton at 973 according to information from Newsweek's The Daily Beast.

Newsweek's recenlty released list of America's Best High Schools 2012 it says, "highlights the best 1,000 public high schools in the nation — the ones that have proven to be the most effective in turning out college-ready grads."

Kettle Moraine issued a press release Tuesday to announce the news. Superintendent Patricia Deklotz shared her excitement.

"The Newsweek recognition is one of several recent acknowledgements of Kettle
Moraine School District and the transformational practices that are making a
difference. It is a strong affirmation of the culmination of learning and experiences
that occur in and outside of our classrooms," Deklotz said.

Newsweek ranked the schools based on data submitted by school officials, graduate rate and test scores among other things.
