New Berlin schools listed among top in Wisconsin for college placements

May 05, 2014 3:02 p.m. | New Berlin — Because so many of its students take exams for college level credit and do well on them, New Berlin Eisenhower and New Berlin West middle/high schools came in for a state and a national honor.

Both were recognized as Advanced Placement Pacesetter Schools by the Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council, and Eisenhower was recognized by U.S. News and World Report as third best in Wisconsin for college readiness. West was ranked fourth.

Pacesetter awards were presented by the council in partnership with Wisconsin Cooperative Educational Services Agencies.

Local schools were recognized for having had more than 30 percent of students take advanced placement college level exams with more than 70 percent scoring at least a three or high enough to win college credit at most universities.

In announcing the awards, the council praised the local high schools for "impressive student AP access and excellence in AP exam scores in the state of Wisconsin."
