  • Ridgefield High School Ranked #5 In Connecticut

Basis Oro Valley and Basis North Tucson were the third- and fourth-best high schools in the country, respectively, beat out only by Basis Scottsdale and Basis Chandler, according to U.S. News & World Report's 2018 Best High Schools rankings list.

Ottawa Hills was ranked 258 nationally out of 20,548 high schools. It has a graduation rate of more than 95 percent, and a college readiness score of 84.4. The school also has a graduation rate of 87 percent.

The methodology used in the ranking formula by U.S. News was based on multiple factors, including enrollment, graduation rates, diversity, participation in free and reduced-price lunch programs and the results of state testing.

Decorah High School ranked sixth in the state and 1,848 nationally followed by Cedar Falls High School in seventh place, a national ranking of 2,207. Of those, schools were ranked based both on student performance, and on how the schools meet the needs of students who are not college-bound.




What other schools made the cut?

In addition to its top spot for the state, Maeser ranked as No. 698 among the nation's public schools. At La Jolla High School, 28.1 percent of students are considered low income and just 3.4 percent are English learners.

Davis is Utah's second-largest school district, with more than 72,000 students. "These rankings are another deserved recognition for the hard-working students and dedicated teachers, principals and families at Chicago Public Schools". Are disadvantaged students performing better than the state average? Are students prepared for college-level coursework? "Our efforts are centered on meeting the needs of all our students, challenging them to push themselves academically, and crafting an overall educational experience that is founded on student learning".

Located in Cerritos, Gretchen Whitney High School in the ABC Unified School District was ranked No. 1 in California and No. 33 in the nation.
