The good news: my alma mater, Lynbrook High, is the 73rd best high school in America, according to US News and World Report. The bad news: our arch rivals, Monta Vista High, rank ahead of us, at 57th. Still, I find myself ever grateful to have attended such a good high school and enjoyed such a good high school experience. Now that I'm quite familiar with what not so good high schools look like, I don't take for granted the leg up I got because I happened to live in a good school district. Just another reason we need to figure out how to make sure everyone has access to a good education.
