U.S. News and World Report crafts its annual ranking of nearly 25,000 high schools across the country in partnership with a North Carolina-based nonprofit research firm, RTI International. Private schools were separately examined — their rankings can be found here.

Researchers then give weighted scores to schools based on six factors including: graduation rates, outcomes in statewide standardized testing, and scores on college-level or advanced placement exams. Ranks were then assigned in descending order based on this overall score.
