US News & World Reports Education Best High Schools

The online magazine site ranked US schools.  Rated them first and then ranked the high schools based on the ratings.   No Ohio schools made the US News top ten nationally.     The magazine rated and ranked the schools by state.  The top ten high schools in central Ohio according to the April 2013 report from the magazine:

  1. Olentangy Liberty High School (4)
  2. Bexley High School (5)
  3. Olentangy High School (7)
  4. Orange High School (11)
  5. Dublin Coffman High School (12)
  6. Dublin Jerome High School (15)
  7. New Albany High School (18)
  8. Upper Arlington High School (25)
  9. Dublin Scioto High School (26)
  10. Hilliard Darby High School (31)

The order ( 1 to 10)  is the order of schools in central Ohio as they appeared on the list of Ohio schools in the US News report.   The number in parenthesis is the rank in Ohio according to US News. Each school (top 125 in Ohio) gets a national ranking number too.  You can look at the Dublin high schools or others on the report, searching by name.  You can also sift through the Ohio list.

Best High Schools Report Methodology

The methodology US News used for their report about ‘ Best High Schools’  did not change from 2012.  ‘American Institutes for Research’ or AIR worked with US News to come up with these ratings/ rankings.  AIR is a behavioral and social science research organization.  US News explains the methodology in “How U.S. News Calculated the 2013 Best High Schools Rankings.” They used a three-step process to determine the Best High Schools ratings / rankings. Serving all students well is part of the way schools across the country are rated.

Columbus Business First had a slide show last week that shows the top 15 local high schools according to the US News report, Olentangy Liberty to Westerville North, which would include the three Dublin High Schools.

The full report in US News has a “Why High Schools Moved Up and Down in the Rankings”  and lots more to read.

Ohio School Report Card

The state of Ohio grades schools.  The US News report is different than the Ohio report cards for school districts and individual schools issued (delayed)  last fall – Columbus Best Schools Report Cards. The Dublin City School District received  a grade of  ‘Excellent with Distinction’  from the state.  Individual elementary, middle and high schools in Dublin schools were graded also.
