ABOUT THE U.S. NEWS 2021 BEST HIGH SCHOOLS RANKING

U.S. News ranked approximately 17,860 public high schools after reviewing nearly 24,000 in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The number of ranked schools is up by around 70 from last year. U.S. News worked with North Carolina-based RTI International, a global nonprofit social science research firm, on the 2021 Best High Schools rankings.

The ranking methodology uses state education data from the 2018-2019 school year. Additional data was provided by the College Board and International Baccalaureate on their respective college-prep programs, Advanced Placement and IB.

Here are the six indicators of school quality U.S. News used to calculate the rankings:

  • College readiness, based on the proportions of 12th grade students who took and earned a qualifying score on AP and/or IB exams.
  • College curriculum breadth, based on proportions of 12th grade students who took and earned a qualifying score on AP and/or IB exams in multiple content areas.
  • Math and reading proficiency, based on student performance on state-required tests.
  • Math and reading performance, based on whether performance on state assessments exceeded expectations given the school's proportion of underserved students.
  • Underserved student performance, based on how Black, Hispanic and low-income students performed on state assessments compared with those who are not underserved in the state.
  • Graduation rate, based on the proportion of students who entered ninth grade in 2015-2016 and graduated four years later.

Schools claiming the top spots in the rankings are those where students excelled on state tests, performing beyond expectations; participated in and earned a qualifying score on various college-level exams; and graduated at high proportions. Using these six standardized and weighted scores, U.S. News ranked schools based on an overall percentile score between zero and 100. U.S. News assigned numerical ranks to schools performing in the top 75%. Schools scoring below the 25th percentile are listed alphabetically with a ranking range.
