According to U.S. News & World Report, they “released America’s Best High schools, 2018 rankings” and “identified Madison Highland Prep, as a winner!” MHP was “among the elite schools that scored high enough to earn a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Best High Schools “badge”.
Here is the updated information they published about our school, including details about its award status:
Reportedly, “less than 30% of the schools earned the right to display a badge and to be called Best High Schools. U.S. News badges are widely recognized as symbols of excellence in education.”
Madison Highland Prep also earned a bronze medal in 2017. Data for MHP’s 2017 award were based on the 2014-2015 school year, which was MHP’s first year of operation. Data from MHP’s second year in operation (2015-2016) was used to determine the current year award.
Schools are ranked based on their performance on state-required tests and how well they prepare students for college. Now that MHP has a full graduation class and college acceptance statistics, our school can qualify for silver and gold status by as early as 2020.
Since 1983, U.S. News has been providing education rankings and helping parents and students find the perfect school. The U.S. News rankings include data on more than 22,000 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia.
