    Best public high schools in America

    As the writer Nora Ephron once said during a commencement address, “Your education is a dress rehearsal for a life that is yours to lead.” If that’s the case, high school may be one of the greatest “dress rehearsals” of all.

    It’s a place where students begin to explore their interests, dive into extracurricular activities, finally get the freedom to begin choosing their own classes, and prepare for college or the workplace. For many of these students and their families, public education is key: 50.7 million students enrolled in public elementary and secondary schools in 2018; and, according to the National Center for Education Statistics, there are about 24,000 public high schools in the U.S.

    For many anxious parents, getting their kid into the best of these public high school is of the utmost importance. Some families even move homes to get into better school districts. However, among all of these thousands of schools, a few stand out for their academic excellence, incredible track records, and the future success of their young students.

    Find out how the 100 best public high schools in the country stack up against each other. This Stacker ranking is derived from Niche’s list of the best public high schools, updated in March 2019, which they base on statistics, reviews, and other data from the U.S. Department of Education. Here’s how it breaks down: Niche uses eight factors for their rankings, with each factor given a different weight. A whopping 60% of the score is based on academics and grades, which is calculated using state assessment proficiency tests, SAT/ACT scores, and survey responses. From there, culture and diversity, parent and student surveys on overall experience, and teachers each contribute to 10% of the score. Finally, scores for each school’s clubs and activities, health and safety, resources and facilities, and sports constitute 2.5% each.

    Read on to find out which schools they determined are the best in the nation.
