The 2018 high school rankings were just released by the publication. It looked at more than 20,500 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. City Honors came in 103rd in national rankings.
To determine the rankings, U.S. News and World Report teamed with RTI International, a global nonprofit social science research firm based in North Carolina.
Performance was based on whether students at each school were performing better than expected of other students in the state, whether historically underserved students (black, Hispanic and low-income) performed better than expected of the same populations state-wide, the school's graduation rate and college-readiness performance.
