CENTER HIMSELF. LOOK AT THAT THERE, DOCTORS SAY BABY KINGSTON IS DOING VERY WELL AND WILL MAKE A FULL RECOVERY. U.S. NEWS AND WORLD REPORT RANKED PINE VIEW SCHOOL IN SARASOTA COUNTY AS NUMBER 1 IN THE STATE, AND NUMBER 19 IN THE COUNTRY. THAT’S PRETTY IMPRESSIVE, JOHN. Reporter: IT REALLY IS IMPRESSIVE. GOOD EVENING, JOSH. PART OF THE BIG RECIPE ARE THE STUDENTS AND THE TEACHERS THAT WORK HERE. IT MAY SOUND CLICHE, BUT THIS ISN’T YOUR TYPICAL HIGH SCHOOL. PINE VIEW SCHOOL IS OFFICIALLY ONE OF THE BEST SCHOOLS IN AMERICA. BUT THAT’S NOT A SHOCK TO THE KIDS THAT GO HERE. IS THE RANKING SURPRISING? NO. I’VE BEEN HERE THROUGH A LOT OF IT, AND I DON’T DOUBT THAT WE ARE DEFINITELY NUMBER 1 IN THE STATE. THESE STUDENTS WORKED REALLY HARD TO EARN THIS DISTINCTION. YOU SEE PINE VIEW IS A MAGNET SCHOOL. MANY OF THESE STUDENTS HAVE BEEN HERE SINCE THEY WERE LITTLE KIDS. OUR STUDENTS HERE REALIZE THAT THEY’RE ROLE MODELS FOR OTHER STUDENTS. THEY TOOK IQ TESTS AND SPECIALIZED EXAMS TO GET IN. THE CLASSES THEY OFFER, FOR ONE THING, ARE QUITE A HIGH LEVEL. THEY’RE ALL HONORS OR AP’S. Reporter: RECENT FIGURES SHOW PINE VIEW STUDENTS HAVE A 98.3% GRADUATION RATE. FAR EXCEEDING THE STATE AVERAGE. THE TEACHERS ARE SPECIALLY TRAINED TO WORK WITH GIFTED STUDENTS. AND PARENTS ARE INVOLVED. HAVING THAT RECOGNITION IS BENEFICIAL TO EVERYONE. Reporter: THIS RANKING IS A TEAM EFFORT. IT’S THE MAGIC SYNERGY THAT MAKES ALL OF THIS HAPPEN. Reporter: AND SCHOOL OFFICIALS WILL NOT REST UNTIL
