The U.S. News rankings include data on more than 20,500 public high schools in 50 states and Washington, D.C. The 2018 Best High Schools rankings awards the top 5,948 public high schools with gold, silver and bronze medals.

Marine Science Magnet High School of Southeastern in Groton, Greenwich High School, Staples High School in Westport, Darien High School, Wilton High School, Hall High School and Conard High School both in West Hartford, Weston High School, Simsbury High School, and New Canaan High School were the remaining schools that were awarded gold medals in the U.S News ranking.

High Technology High School, with 295 students, also was No. 1 in New Jersey, followed by Bergen County Academics in Hackensack at No. 2 and Bergen County Technical High School in Teterboro at No. 3. "Congratulations and thank you for your hard work!"

Minnesota has seven schools in the top 500, nationally.

Within San Diego, most top-performing districts and campuses have lower percentages of students who are English learners or come from low-income families - factors which typically affect test scores and graduation rates.

Suncoast was one of only two schools in Florida to earn a spot on the list.

The "Best" high schools and charter schools in the nation are based in Arizona, specifically in Scottsdale, Chandler and Oro Valley, according to the report. The AP® participation rate at Ridgefield High School is 70 percent.

Morse said the U.S. News rankings take those differences into account, and weight scores partially based on how the schools compare to others in their state, and how they serve those facing economic or language barriers.

This school in Media is part of the Rosetree Media School District. "We selected schools that outperformed their state averages".

"It's nice being a small school so that we can know them individually and what their needs are", Ellis said.
