Highland High School Ranked Among Top Schools
Highland High School has once again been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best high schools in Ohio and a top high school in the nation for 2014 through their annual Best High School Rankings. Highland High School has earned a Silver Medal and an impressive ranking of 59 in Ohio out of 832 high schools and 1,238 out of 19,400 high schools in the nation. The Best High Schools rankings, which are available online only, are produced in conjunction with the American Institutes for Research, one of the largest behavioral and social science research organizations in the world. U.S. News has published detailed information on more than 19,400 public high schools, including school-specific data on enrollment, ethnicity, location, school type and results of state assessment proficiency tests and Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate tests. Using some of these data and a comprehensive methodology, the schools were given a College Readiness Index score, with the top-scoring 4,707 schools receiving a gold, silver or bronze medal and - in the case of gold and silver schools - a numerical ranking. Of the numerous Ohio schools ranked in 2014 among the U.S. News Best High Schools, 22 were awarded gold medals, 93 earned silver medals and 129 received bronze medals.
