Mahomet-Seymour High School was recognized this week by the Chicago Sun-Times as one of the best high schools in the state.
MSHS ranked 36th out of 689 entries on the Sun-Times' annual list of Illinois' top high schools. Rankings are based on juniors' average reading and math scores on state achievement tests.
MSHS Principal Shannon Cheek attributed the high ranking to a great staff and student body. "I think it's just the atmosphere that the staff creates here at the high school," he said, adding that kids feel comfortable and encouraged to work hard.
In a statement, Mahomet-Seymour Director of Instruction Mary Weaver echoed Cheek's praise of students and staff. "The ranking is a result of the hard work and commitment of our students, and also reflects the countless hours our high school staff spends to ensure the best possible instructional opportunities for our students," she said.
