Newsweek Releases Top 10 Public High Schools


This report has been compiled by Newsweek for “more than 10 years” on the top public high schools in America.  And for some reason, there was not one school on the list either from the East Coast or in climates where it gets cold.  So, of course these schools are all in the south and west coast of the country, except for no. 8 in Oregon.

The qualifications for the top schools is a formula concocted by the Newsweek staff.  They take into consideration the amount of advanced placement tests against the amount of graduating seniors.  None of the criteria included anything like great teachers or the type of activities students are involved in.

The top five schools out of the 1500 surveyed are:

No. 1: Talented and Gifted in Dallas
No. 2: Science/Engineering Magnet in Dallas
No. 3: Jefferson County IBS in Irondale, Ala.
No. 4: Stanton College Prep in Jacksonville, Fla.
No. 5: BASIS Charter in Tuscon, Ariz.
