Beulah makes the Top 500
By Chris Erickson
Beulah High School has another feather to place in its hat thanks to a new Newsweek listing that combined multiple metrics to weigh a school’s success rate.
On a list put out last week, Beulah High School came in at the 460th spot on the publication’s Top 500 list of best schools in the country. It was the only school from North Dakota to earn a place on the list.
High School Principal Kevin Hoherz said he first heard about the national ranking after Newsweek sent an email to the school notifying administrators and staff about the newest prestige.
“It is quite an honor. It is recognition locally, statewide, and nationwide that the students, staff, and community should be proud,” Hoherz said. “They are recognizing Beulah High School but it is a tribute to the entire district, including Beulah Middle School and Beulah Elementary. All district employees can take pride in this award because in some way they have contributed to the success of students.”
According to Hoherz, BHS made lists such as this for a combination of factors.
“One factor is a hard working school district that takes pride in the jobs they do,” he said.
