HHS Climbs Ranks in 'Top High Schools' Listing

Best High Schools LogoHighland High School has again been named one of America’s Top High Schools 2017 by U.S. News & World Report and was awarded a Silver Medal. The rankings include data on more than 22,000 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. Schools were awarded gold, silver or bronze medals based on their performance on state assessments, their graduation rates and how well they prepare students for college.

Highland High School is now ranked 45th out of 384 Ohio schools and 1,148 nationally, climbing from the 2016 rankings of 48th and 1,212 respectively. Within Northeast Ohio, Highland ranks 13th. A four-step process determined the Best High Schools. The first three steps ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using their performance on the math and reading parts of their state proficiency tests and graduation rates as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first three steps, a fourth step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work. Highland High School boasts a graduation rate of 96 percent and a college readiness score of 41.1.
