Newsweek & The Daily Beast's Annual List of the Best High Schools in America

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

NEW YORK, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Newsweek & The Daily Beast rank America's Best High Schools in Annual List – Florida, Texas and Arizona dominate the top ten

There are countless ways to analyze high schools. For the last two years, Newsweek & The Daily Beast have considered the nation's high schools with a simple conceit: to find the ones that best prepare students for college.

This year, we offered one update to our methodology. Instead of considering the number of courses offered, which is limited even for the most ambitious high school curricula, we weighed the percentage of students enrolled in an AP, IB or Advance International Certificate of Education (AICE) course.

All the data we analyzed was self-reported by each school for the 2011-2012 school year. We invited more than 5,000 high schools to participate in the survey this year, and nearly 2,500 responded. All public high schools in the U.S. are eligible.

Our analysis excluded schools that were newly founded and did not have a graduating senior class in 2012. All submissions were screened to ensure the data met several parameters of logic and consistency. Schools whose submissions did not meet these standards and/or appeared to have incorrect data were contacted directly for clarification. Those that did not respond with corrected data within the specified timeframe could not be considered in the ranking process.
