May 16th Minnpost.Com Article Explains Henry's National Ranking
An excerpt from the Minnpost.com article by Beth Hawkins: Perhaps best described as Minneapolis’ sleeper success, Patrick Henry has made other “best” lists.

Al Franken and we watched high-poverty math and engineering students figure out vectors, R values, the Pythagorean theorem and lots of other stuff that’s above my pay grade. The future of our state’s economy is being cooked up in Henry’s halls.
