U.S. News & World Report issued its annual list of top high schools both at the national and state level today.
The rankings consider overall student performance on state tests, how effectively schools educated their least-advantaged students, black, Hispanic and low-income students, and how well they readied students for college based on Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate participation and test performance.
As usual, the Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology landed in the national top 10, taking fourth place nationally this year. (It was third last year.)
On the state list of best schools, the Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology is No. 1. Fulton County has four schools in the top 10 state list.
Several of the top 10 are magnet schools that draw students from across their districts.
