Best High schools U.S News Rankings

U.S. News Announces Stillman Valley High School earned high National and metro-area rankings in 2022 Best High Schools

 The 2022 edition of Best High Schools includes a numerical ranking of nearly all public high schools nationwide – almost 18,000 of them. There are rankings within each state and within each census-designated metropolitan area that has three or more high schools, as well as the Best STEM Schools ranking and comprehensive Best Charter Schools and Best Magnet Schools rankings. Also published are rankings of high schools within each school district that has three or more high schools.

With today’s launch, U.S. News has published detailed school-specific information on enrollment, graduation rates, student body demographics, location, school type and results of state assessments as well as Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate tests.

The Best High Schools rankings, available online only, are produced in conjunction with RTI International, a global research firm. U.S. News doesn’t collect data directly from high schools – all data comes directly from official third-party sources. U.S. News receives AP and IB data directly from the College Board and International Baccalaureate, respectively, for use in the rankings. The state assessment data and graduation rates are from each state, and other data comes from the U.S. Department of Education Common Core of Data.

The methodology focuses on six factors: college readiness, reading and math proficiency, reading and math performance, underserved student performance, college curriculum breadth and graduation rates. College readiness specifically measures participation and performance on Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams

Meridian CUSD 223 is proud to be recognized with this prestigious honor for the 6th consecutive year. This is an incredible accomplishment for any district, but in particular for a district that had not been honored prior to this streak. Dr. PJ Caposey, Superintendent of Schools, noted, “To earn this recognition for six consecutive years demonstrates the commitment to excellence of our teaching staff and leadership team. I am tremendously proud of and thankful for their continued determination to strive for excellence.”.
