Best High Schools In Minnesota

A few days ago, U.S. News & World Report released the 2013 Best High Schools Ranking. Results from Minnesota are available here.

Three schools in Woodbury, Woodbury High School (#16), Math & Science Academy (#22) and East Ridge High School (#36) have  earned silver medals in the U.S. News & World Report’s ranking of the Best High Schools in America. Minnesota has six gold medal schools, 40 silver medal schools and 90 bronze medal schools in the 2013 ranking.

The U.S. News & World Report determines the Best High Schools rankings by evaluating schools on overall student performance on statewide assessments, as well as how effectively schools educated their black, Hispanic and economically disadvantaged students. Performance on Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams were also used to determine how well schools prepare students for college-level work.
