Area high schools recognized in US News and World Report rankings

Richmond was ranked as California's 18th best public high school in the report, and 144th nationally.

The STEM-focused school, which serves grades 7-12, was the highest ranked school in the Inland Empire, with Cobalt earning a score of 58.3 on the U.S. News College Readiness Index, and UP scoring 54.3. In addition to its top spot for the state, Maeser ranked as No. 698 among the nation's public schools.

The top high schools in IL in 2018 are found in Chicago, according to a new report.

"This recognition is validation of the hard work and dedication demonstrated by our stakeholders on a daily basis", said Coy Samons, superintendent of the Murray Independent School District. The other Florida school was Sheridan Technical High School in Fort Lauderdale. A third step, added three years ago, looked at the schools' graduation rates for students.

Cassen noted that the district's rankings aren't a goal in themselves, but the result of efforts to prepare students to graduate from high school and move onto jobs or college.

Tiger Woods , who shot 3-under 68 to get to 1-under, walked off the course frustrated for the third consecutive day. Day, who won the Farmers Insurance Open in January, said he feels like he's close to the form he had at No. 1.

"The data shows that when high schools utilize these courses student achievement follows".

Massachusetts' schools are consistently named the country's best, but even within the state's strong spots of learning, some stand out as the crème de la crème, the shiniest of the shiny, the greatest of all. Schools which outperformed their state averages were selected.

"We're thrilled with the No. 1 ranking", Miller said.

The new rankings show some schools slipping within Utah, relative to the rest of the nation.

Schools also must have a minimum graduation rate of 80 percent to qualify for the rankings, and added weight is given based on the number of students who complete Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams.
