To no surprise, the top card is Washington University in St. Louis, ranked as the No. 1 college or university in the state. It also came in at No. 32 out of the 1,009 U.S. schools included in the analysis.

But the latest survey from personal finance website WalletHub does show a few changes in the rest of the order.

Solving for ‘x’ in math class is often met with dread and trepidation from some high school students. Hailey Meersman was not one of them.

“I remember saying to my mom in high school, ‘I wish I could have a job where I could just ‘solve for x’ all day!’” said Meersman. As an advanced algebra II and calculus teacher as St. Joseph’s Academy in St. Louis, she is doing just that – and then some.

Meersman attended St. Joseph’s herself, an all-girls private, preparatory high school, and was eager to return upon graduation.

KIRKWOOD — The Kirkwood School Board approved a plan Monday to bring middle school students back to in-class learning, but students will stay only until 12:30. They will then go home and have virtual classes for the rest of the day.

In an email sent to middle school parents Tuesday, the district said the two middle schools “do not have adequate staff to relieve teachers to go to lunch, and the cafeteria is not an option due to the need to use the space for instruction.”

A free sack lunch will be provided to every student, district officials said.
