TCAPS High Schools Receive Awards for College Readiness and Excellence

Traverse City West Senior High School (10) and Traverse City Central High School (9) received College Success Awards from GreatSchools, a nonprofit that gathers and analyzes statistical information about secondary and post-secondary education from schools across the nation. 

The award criteria ranks schools a scale of 1-10 and includes SAT scores, advanced placement participation, graduation rates, and graduates who enrolled to pursue two- or four-year college degrees. Traverse City Central High School (88.96) and Traverse City West Senior High School (94.40) also received high marks on the 2016-17 Michigan Department of Education School Index Score. The 0-100 index score replaces the school scorecards and focuses on factors including graduation rate, state test performance, and improvement within sub groups (ex: special education). In addition, Traverse City West Senior High School received a Silver Award from U.S. News and World Report, ranking #23 in the state of Michigan.
