Frankton Junior-Senior High and Lapel High Schools Named Best Buys

Frankton Junior-Senior High School and Lapel High School were named “best buys” by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday.  The Chamber named the schools as such because of their academic excellence and their low cost in terms of tax dollars. The Chamber, in conjunction with Indiana State University, looked at 350 high schools around the state. Their “best buy” determinations were made by looking at ISTEP pass rates, graduation rates, SAT participation rates and scores, and Advanced Placement testing scores. Also looked at was how much money the school system spent on each student, and whether it was below the state average of $10,196.
