Washington Monthly, founded in 1969, is a well-known magazine based in the nation's capitol. Recently, the magazine ran an article entitled, "America's Best Community Colleges." In a nutshell, the article, as evidenced by its title, offers a list of the top 50 community colleges in the nation.
To create this list, Washington Monthly "graded" colleges in six different areas including: Active and Collaborative Learning, Student Effort, Academic Challenge, Student-Faculty Interaction, Support for Learning, and 4-Year Graduation Rate.
After crunching the numbers and assessing community colleges nationwide using this 6-part rubric, Washington Monthly ranked Green River Community College number 29 out of a possible 50.
