Bonita High School has returned to the national list of America’s Most Challenging High Schools, compiled by the Washington Post. Bonita was ranked the 1,460 most challenging high school in America, a higher ranking than in the past. The Washington Post’s Education Columnist Jay Matthews released his annual rankings of how well the nation’s top high schools challenge their students. 2017 showed a sustained increase in the number of schools that qualify for America’s Most Challenging High Schools list, with about 12 percent of U.S. high schools making the cut. When the list debuted in 1998, just one percent qualified.
