Newsweek Releases 2012 Best High Schools in America Rankings -- Kentucky's Gatton Academy Tops List

PR Newswire

NEW YORK, May 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Newsweek magazine's definitive list of the 1000 top public high schools in America hits newsstands Monday. Measuring data such as percent of graduates accepted to college, AP / IB tests per student and average SAT scores, Newsweek reveals that of the top 1000, 138 of the schools are in California, 118 in New York, 86 in Texas and 74 in New Jersey.

"Newsweek has produced this list for more than a decade, in the process we've become the leader in evaluating America's best public high schools. Education is one of the public's top concerns and this year we've seen that many schools are triumphing with very limited funds and resources. We've expanded the list from 500 to 1,000 making our 2012 study more comprehensive than ever," said Mark Miller, Director of Editorial Operations for Newsweek.

The issue hits newsstands Monday 21st May.
