9 DeKalb high schools among America's Most Challenging

(WXIA) -- The Washington Post has unveiled its 2014 list of America's Most Challenging High Schools.

The newspaper determines the annual rankings through a ratio: the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests a school gives each year, divided by the number of graduating seniors.

Nine DeKalb County schools made the list, which features more than 2,000 high schools across the country. The listed numbers are each school's national ranking.

178. DeKalb School of the Arts
325. Chamblee Charter HS
606. Tucker HS
808. Dunwoody HS
935. Lakeside HS
1241. Druid Hills HS
1666. Southwest DeKalb HS
1687. Arabia Mountain HS
1962. Cross Keys HS

Additionally, Decatur High School, which is part of a charter system, is No. 205 on the list.
