Local schools make 'US News' list
Love them or hate them, everyone seems to enjoy looking and and picking apart lists that rank schools. So here's another one for your consideration.
US News and World Report has just posted its 2009 America's Best High Schools edition, evaluating more than 21,000 schools and giving one of four ratings - gold, silver, bronze or honorable mention - to about 1,900 of them.
The ratings are based on several factors, including the success of students in all demographic groups and the level of college readiness that students demonstrated. Are these really the best? Who knows. For some teens, probably yes. For others, maybe not.
But like we said, lists are just the starting point for a conversation. Have yours about America's Best High Schools here.
