More Rankings: Best High Schools in the Nation

Another week, another set of rankings. This time by Newsweek, which ranked the top 2,000 high schools in America. 

Here is their methodology to see where Highlands ranked: 

This year our ranking highlights the best 2,000 public high schools in the nation—those that have proven to be the most effective in turning out college-ready grads. The list is based on six components: graduation rate (25 percent), college acceptance rate (25 percent), AP/IB/AICE tests taken per student (25 percent), average SAT/ACT scores (10 percent), average AP/IB/AICE scores (10 percent), and percent of students enrolled in at least one AP/IB/AICE course (5 percent). 
Highlands clocked in at number 333. Here's how that was calculated:
Graduation rate: 89%
College bound: 98%
Average AP tests taken per student: 1
Average AP test score: 3.4

Once again, Beechwood got the best of Highlands in the rankings, coming in at number 247. Other Kentucky high schools that outranked Highlands were Carol Martin Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science (Bowling Green) #1, Dupont Manual (Louisville) #50.
