Congratulations to the Virginia schools that were announced on Monday, September 29, for national recognition as a 2013-2014 Blue Star School by Working in Support of Education (W!se). A school testing ten or more students must have achieved a 75% passing rate on the W!SE Financial Literacy Certification Test and have a majority of students on a given grade level take the test OR have the students who took it achieve an average score of 80% or higher. Of the 284 schools on the national listing, 52% of those (148) were Virginia schools. The Blue Star schools will be honored at the annual MoneyPOWER Conference for Financial Literacy in New York City on November 4.
• U.S. News and World Report chose Patrick Henry as one of the Best High Schools in the United States of America for the 3rd year in a row! PHHS is among the top 15% of high schools in Virginia and among the top 10% of high schools in the United States
• Patrick Henry received recognition on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange for being ranked 17th in the United States by W!se Financial for our students' performance on personal finance testing administered through the W!se Financial Program
• Patrick Henry has six students who have earned a State FFA degree. Alex Rickman, Alex VanHoy, Hannah Orfield, Hannah Surber, Brittany Lawson, and Wyatt Rasnake will receive their degrees in June. Also in June, the Patrick Henry FFA Chapter has been confirmed to receive the Virginia Superior Chapter Award.
• Patrick Henry High School was recently elected to serve as President School for the Virginia Student Council Association. Emma Buchanan, with the assistance of other SCA officers, will spear head this impressive state leadership responsibility.
"We are truly blessed to live in a community where so many of our schools can share similar recognitions. Patrick Henry High School is very proud to represent Washington County and Southwest Virginia in receiving these accolades, but we are certainly not content. As a school community, we will continue to work hard to improve our scores in Math, Science, and Writing, and across the AP curriculum. We will also continue to provide students with a wide variety of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities. As always, we will continue to build relationships with our students and parents because we know how crucial relationships are to individual student success and the success of our school. Our vision truly is to Empower Students for Global Citizenship in the 21st Century. We appreciate your support in helping us strive toward this goal."
