Williamsville's three high schools make list of nation's Best High Schools
Williamsville’s three high schools rank among the best in the nation according to the annual U.S. News & World Report 2018 list of Best High Schools released Wednesday.
The publication evaluated more than 20,500 public high schools across the country and assigned the top performing schools gold, silver, or bronze medals, with gold indicating the “greatest level of college readiness.” The top 5,948 public high schools, or less than 30 percent of the schools evaluated by U.S. News, made the list of Best High Schools. Each of the three Williamsville high schools are among the schools that earned silver awards.
Williamsville South is No. 564 on the list of best schools in the country, and is No. 65 in the state. Williamsville North is No. 690, and Williamsville East is No. 776 nationwide, and No. 71 and No. 79 in the state, respectively.
U.S. News ranks schools on factors that include the school’s relative performance on state tests, how underserved students perform, graduation rates and a calculation based on the number of students taking Advanced Placement classes.
