Ridgefield High School Ranked #5 In Connecticut

Va. school makes top 10 'best high schools' list; Md. ranks No. 3 for college readiness

U.S. News and World Report on Wednesday released its annual Best High Schools list, one of the most prominent national school rankings.

Loveless Academy Magnet Program in Montgomery (LAMP) was named the top high school in Alabama.

Only two percent of the nation's high schools earn gold medal status, with 11 percent - including Ocean Springs - gaining silver medal recognition.

The first step determines "whether each school's students were performing better than statistically expected for students in the state". Schools which outperformed their state averages were selected.

Gold and silver awards are based on the percent of students participating in and achieving passing scores on the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate tests, according to U.S. News. Peoria's graduation rate was 96 percent. Tiebreakers determined the ranks of schools achieving the same CRI. OSHS ranked #1476 out of the 22,000 schools examined, meaning it ranked among the top seven percent of all high school nationwide.

The magnet school was ranked 8 out of 670 public high schools in IL and 261 out of 20,548 public high schools in the country that U.S. News reviewed - good enough for a Gold medal.

Each of Arkansas' top three high schools this year are open-enrollment charter schools. Bentonville High School stayed at No. 5.

Rogers' New Technology High School, now in its fifth year, placed 12th in the ranking.
