Buffalo high school ranked best in Upstate New York, 17th in state

U.S. News and World Report is out with its annual rankings of the nation's best public high schools, and Boston Latin School tops the list of institutions in MA.

The 2018 high school rankings were just released by the publication.

How PMSA students compared with students across District 209 and the state in m ath and reading proficiency.

Amistad Academy in New Haven, Connecticut International Baccalaureate Academy in East Hartford, Achievement First Hartford Academy, and the Academy of Aerospace and Engineering in Windsor, all beat out Ridgefield for the top ranking, respectively.

Based in part on test scores and an 82 percent participation rate in Advanced Placement courses, Lenox came in fourth in MA out of 354 schools, and ranked 202 in the nation out of 20,548 public high schools ranked by the magazine.




Only two percent of the nation's high schools earn gold medal status, with 11 percent - including Ocean Springs - gaining silver medal recognition. Peoria's graduation rate was 96 percent. MA is home to the largest percentage of schools that earned gold and silver medals from U.S. News, which are awarded based on students' graduation rate, college readiness, and test scores.

The first step determines "whether each school's students were performing better than statistically expected for students in the state". Other locally ranked high schools include Homewood at No. 3; Oak Mountain at No. 5, Vestavia Hills at No. 6; Spain Park at No. 14; and Hoover at No. 26. Of all AP exams taken by the participating students, the pass rate was 64 percent.

The initial field of 28,813 public high schools was cut down to about 20,000.

Rogers' New Technology High School, now in its fifth year, placed 12th in the ranking.
