HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - For the second time in as many months, Black River Public School has earned a national accolade.

The Holland-based charter school was fifth in the state and 318th out of over two thousand schools nationally in the latest America’s Most Challenging Schools list put together by the Washington Post. It’s based on an index formula based on the ratio of advanced placement, international baccalaureate and advanced international certificate of education tests given, divided by the number of graduating seniors. Black River Head of School Shannon Brunink admits that the students challenge themselves more than what his staff or teacher do.

In April, Black River was seventh statewide and 374th nationally in the US News and World Report’s high school evaluation survey.
