HHS 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 2015 through their annual Best High School Rankings, which were released on May 12. Highland High School has earned a Silver Medal and an impressive ranking of 46th in Ohio out of 881 high schools and 1,140th out of 21,000 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 21,000 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 6,517 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 2015 among the U.S. News Best High Schools, 19 were awarded gold medals, 138 earned silver medals and 260 received bronze medals. For more information, please visit: http://www.usnews.com/education/best-high-schools
