America’s Best High Schools: From Massachusetts to California, a look at the schools that excel in teaching students, U.S. News and World Report, Nov. 29, 2007.
U.S. News and World Report has complied its first ever ranking report for America’s Best High Schools with the help of a formula produced in collaboration with School Evaluation Services. Approximately 18,000 high schools in 40 different states were evaluated based on a three step-analysis. First, how each school’s students performed on state tests; second, the success of each school’s disadvantaged students; and third, whether the school provided college level coursework. The results were somewhat surprising, revealing that top ranking schools included children from what can be considered diverging backgrounds and socioeconomic status.
