Haas Hall's Fayetteville campus led the state's high schools for the seventh straight year and climbed 10 spots to 50th in the nation, according to the rankings released today.

Michigan's International Academy of Macomb was named the top magnet school; High Technology High School in Lincroft, N.J.as the best STEM school; and BASIS Scottsdale as the best charter school.

The states of Massachusetts, California and Maryland had the highest percentage of eligible schools that received gold and silver medals. "Congratulations and thank you for your hard work!"

Gautier High School was the only other Jackson County school to appear in the state rankings and earn a medal status, coming in at #12 statewide - an identical ranking to a year ago - and earning a bronze medal.

Chattanooga Center for Creative Arts came in 7th place this year, which means they earned a silver medal.

OSHS ranked #1476 out of the 22,000 schools examined, meaning it ranked among the top seven percent of all high school nationwide.

The first step determines "whether each school's students were performing better than statistically expected for students in the state".




A total of 104 bronze medals were awarded in Iowa based on graduation rates and how the schools performed on state assessments.

PMSA's student body is 47 percent low-income, 94 percent minority, 39 percent male and 61 percent female.

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

Academy for Academic Excellence in Apple Valley was the next highest ranking school in the High Desert.

The methodology used in the ranking formula by U.S. News was based on multiple factors, including enrollment, graduation rates, diversity, participation in free and reduced-price lunch programs and the results of state testing.
