List: Denver top schools ranked by national magazine

U.S. News & World Report is once again breaking down the top schools in metro areas across the country, including right here in the Mile High area.

Among the factors taken into consideration while ranking the schools were college readiness, under-served student performance, reading and math performance, college curriculum breadth, and graduation rates.

“We’ve heard from students, parents and school officials that they’re interested in seeing how their school compares with others in the community,” Robert Morse, chief data strategist at U.S. News, said in a statement. “With these new rankings, residents in more than 900 metro areas nationwide can see which local schools are succeeding at educating and graduating their students.”
