A Minnesota high school will eliminate class rankings from students' transcripts next year in an effort to reduce pressure and competition and improve students' chances of enrolling in college. Officials said so many students have high GPAs that some successful students have low class rankings. The school still will provide rankings for colleges that require them, and officials say going forward they plan to honor all students with a 3.7 GPA or above at graduation ceremonies.
