How NKY High Schools Rank On The Latest US News List

US News released its annual list of the best high schools, a rating and ranking of all public high schools in the country.

The magazine ranked schools nationally, by state, and within subway areas.

Some northern Kentucky high schools ranked high while others did not do so well.

“The highest-rated public schools in the US in the US News & World Report’s Best High Schools Ranking for 2021 are those whose students achieved excellent results on math and reading status assessments qualified on a series of college-level exams Results achieved and proportions achieved high completion, “said the publication.

US News summed school grades across six indicators of school quality and then calculated a single total score from zero to 100 that reflected a school’s performance across those metrics. The total score shows how well each school performed on a national percentile basis. For example, a school with a score of 60 in the 60th percentile among all schools in the ranking.

The six indicators and their percentages for consideration were college readiness (30%), college curriculum breadth (10%), math and reading literacy (20%), math and reading achievement (20%), underserved student achievement (10%) %), and graduation rate (10%).

The following is the order in which schools in Northern Kentucky were ranked, followed by total score (on a scale of 100), rank in Kentucky (out of 377), and rank in the Cincinnati subway (out of 119). Note that schools that scored less than 25 had their scores hidden so US news could protect the real number of those who ranked in the lowest quarter of the percentile.
