WILTON, Conn. – Wilton High School is considered one of the most challenging high schools in the country, according to The Washington Post’s “Most Challenging High Schools” of 2013 listing.

Out of more than 2,000 public and private high schools nationwide, Wilton was listed at No. 796. In the Northeast region, Wilton ranked at No. 107 out of 264 schools.

Of the 18 Connecticut high schools that made the list, Wilton was ranked as the 10th most challenging. It is preceded by Greenwich High School at No. 6, Weston High School at No. 7, Ridgefield High at No. 8, and Westport's Staples High School at No. 9. Fairfield Warde also made the list at No. 12, and New Canaan placed at No. 14.

The rankings are based on each school’s index score. These scores are determined by the number of college-level tests given at a school each year and divided by the number of seniors who graduated that same year, the Post explains.

Nationwide, American Indian Public Charter in Oakland, Calif., was rated as the No. 1 most challenging school. In the state, Connecticut IB Academy in East Hartford ranked at No. 1.
