The spring is an important time of year for families with students who will be moving to a new school in the fall. As students finish up the academic year in the spring of 2023, the focus will then move to the upcoming fall semester, a very important one for students going to high school for the first time.

Recently-released rankings have shown that these local area high schools are providing that balance for their student-athletes better than most.
