  • Jericho High School made the U.S. News

Ridgefield High School principal Stacey Gross shared the news saying, "Our Gold Medal Ranking is based upon the review of over 28,500 US public high schools". Gold, silver or bronze medals were awarded to schools based on their performance on state assessments and college preparedness, according to U.S. News.

The top ranking high school in the state is Central Magnet School in Murfreesboro.

Graves County High School ranked 51st, with a graduation rate of 94 percent and a college readiness rating of 16.8. "I congratulate the students, teachers and staff of these schools for blazing a path of excellence".

One other Georgia school, Columbus High School in Columbus, placed just outside the top 100 at 105.

Within San Diego, most top-performing districts and campuses have lower percentages of students who are English learners or come from low-income families - factors which typically affect test scores and graduation rates. Additionally, for the third year in a row, the school earned a silver medal.

The more important features, though, are the cloud saves, which means we'll be able to save our games online for access anywhere. At present, Nintendo's wording ("all members of the group will have access to Nintendo Switch Online ") implies that we will.

Three of those schools are charters, with Harding Charter Preparatory High School claiming the top spot, followed by Dove Science Academy (charter) and Classen High School of Advanced Studies.

"A great high school", said the rankings' website, "must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show it is successfully educating its student body across a range of performance indicators".

Ocean Springs College Readiness Index score of 33.3 was tops in MS and far exceeded that of all other Jackson County schools, with Pascagoula High School the next highest at 18.8.

The new rankings show some schools slipping within Utah, relative to the rest of the nation. It was also ranked No. 519 in the country.

This year's rankings were a significant improvement over last year, when PMSA was ranked 32 in the state and 1,044 nationally, and received a Silver medal.
