BEEHIVE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY ACADEMY RANKED SECOND BEST HIGH SCHOOL IN UTAH BY U.S. NEWS
Sandy—U.S. News has ranked Beehive Science and Technology Academy as the second best high school in Utah. The Sandy-based charter school was also ranked as number 736 in national rankings, number 138 among all charter schools in the nation, and number 116 among magnet high schools (magnet schools are those with a specialized curriculum).
U.S. News ranks schools based on their performance on state-required tests, graduation and how well they prepare students for college. U.S. News included 17,245 schools in its rankings.
The only school in Utah to rank above Beehive was InTech College High School (a charter school) in Logan. That school achieved a score of 98.42 out of 100 compared with Beehive’s 95.73.
One of the factors cited by U.S. News in Beehive’s rankings was that 50 percent of the school’s high school students participate in AP classes.
