According to the 2020 U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools Rankings released on April 21, Highland High School is ranked 13th out of 129 high schools in the Cleveland Metro area, 36th among Ohio’s 902 high schools and 1,013th out of 17,792 high schools nationally.
U.S. News evaluated over 24,000 public high schools nationwide, with more than 17,000 schools ranked. The highest ranked public schools are those whose attendees demonstrated outstanding outcomes above expectations in math and reading state assessments, passed a diverse array of college-level exams and graduated in high proportions.
“To be recognized as one of the top 13 high schools in Northeast Ohio and to be in the top 3.9% statewide is a great accomplishment not only for Highland High School but for the entire district and community,” stated Highland Superintendent Catherine Aukerman. “We are certainly proud to be recognized as one of the best and have continued to climb steadily in the rankings each year. Last year, we were ranked 40th among Ohio high schools and 17th in Northeast Ohio. We recognize that this is truly a team effort and without the strong academic foundation that is provided to our students at the elementary schools and middle school, and without the support of families at home, this recognition at the high school level would not be possible."
