Newsweek released a report in collaboration with STEM.org ranking B-CC as the 892nd Best High School STEM program in the United States out of 5,000 high schools.
To compare, four Montgomery County Public High Schools ranked in the Top 500. Poolesville High School ranked 121st, Thomas S. Wootton High School ranked 160th, Winston Churchill High School ranked 282nd, and Walt Whitman High School ranked 419th.
Newsweek and STEM.org determined their ranking system by evaluating skilled teachers and programs across the country who create a vigorous learning environment, continuously keeping up with developments in the STEM field, and preparing students for post-school life.
“I think that definitely as the departments grow and as kids start learning more about the program that the ranking will improve,” said Dr. Mooney.
