      Upper Michigan school ranked on list of best in the U.S.

      A high school in the Upper Peninsula has made it on Newsweek's America's Best High School List for 2013.

      The Norway-Vulcan High School was named one of America's Best High Schools in Newsweek's latest list for 2013. The list of 2,000 schools in the nation is compiled based on which schools best prepare students for college. Data, such as graduation rates and advanced placements, were considered and recorded.

      "Newsweek does surveys and sends out information for us to return to them annually," said NVAS Superintendant Louis Steigerwald. "We filled out our information this year, and we were told that we were rated as one of the best high schools in the United States by Newsweek and also the Huffington Post now."

      Norway-Vulcan High School had a 96 percent graduation rate with 82 percent of students college-bound. The school says they're very pleased with making this national list.
