Bright Oklahoma high school students l ighting up the scoreboards

by The Oklahoman Editorial Board Published: September 26, 2012

Among private schools, Tulsa's Bishop Kelly (2-2 in football so far this year) has an incredible 14 students on the list. That's topped only by the 16 at the public Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics, which doesn't field a football team.

The point of this is to say that even as September turns to October, football is far from being the only way to judge the success of high schools. In fact it's far from the best way. What the students do in the classroom has that distinction.

Memorial's Bulldogs aren't winning on the gridiron but some Memorial students are doggedly determined nevertheless. We congratulate them and the other Oklahoma high school students — public, private and homeschooled — who are excelling in academics.
