Metro Academic & Classical High School in the St. Louis Pubic School system is the top high school in the state (prior post)! It’s student body is also selected from the best in the city, not just any kid can attend. Of course, this is a major factor in producing the outstanding results.
The poll results and the comments varied widely, as one might expect:

- Unsure/no opinion 6 [6.52%]
The #1 & #3 answers represent for than half those that took the poll. The “other” answers were:

- They would go to the closest High School to the house

- Only sending kids to private schools
- onlt if I couldn’t afford to send them to one of our great catholic schools
The purpose of the poll was to spark some discussion around education, which it did.
