America’s Top Public High Schools



My daughters’ High School ranked  446th.  Not too shabby.  San Antonio has twelve of the top 1300 spots.  Not bad – but we can do a lot better!

Public schools are ranked according to a ratio devised by Jay Mathews: the number of Advanced Placement, Intl. Baccalaureate and/or Cambridge tests taken by all students at a school in 2007 divided by the number of graduating seniors. All of the schools on the list have an index of at least 1.000; they are in the top 5 percent of public schools measured this way
